MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut police have searched the Quinnipiac River in Meriden after a third pipe bomb was found in the water.
The state police bomb squad searched the area Thursday morning at the request of Meriden police after the third bomb was found on Sunday. Officials say no additional bombs were found. The other explosives were found in the same area in January and September.
