Bomb Squad Commander Says Longview Device Was Probably Bomb

A device found at the end of a man's driveway in Longview on Tuesday was probably a bomb, according to the man who helped detonate it.

Ian Snellgrove, the commander of the Bossier City Bomb Squad, told KLTV 7's Lakecia Shockley that the device, which looked like a pipe with taped up ends and a fuse, appeared to be an explosive bomb, and by the look and size of the device, it could have done 'extensive damage'.

Confirmation of the nature of the device is pending lab results, which are expected in the next week.
