It's not clear whether or not the object really was a live pipe bomb or not, but the Police took care of it

DAVID F. ASHTON - A Portland Police Explosive Disposal Unit member suited-up before investigating an explosive device, which looked like a pipe bomb, in Woodstock. After a neighbor reported seeing what looked like a "pipe bomb" lying on S.E. Woodstock Boulevard near 43rd Avenue, around dawn on Thursday morning, September 24, police officers were dispatched to the area to evaluate the situation at 6:32 a.m.

"East Precinct officers came first; then, members of the PPB Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) were called in," reported Public Information Officer Derek Carmon.

The EDU responders safely removed the device, Carmon added. "There is no danger to the public." So far, it has not been disclosed whether the object was an explosive, but we are told that arson investigators would like to hear from anyone who has specific information.
