Lyndeborough police hunt for clues about four bombs

LYNDEBOROUGH – State and local police are trying to determine who constructed four homemade chemical bombs and put them on a Lyndeborough driveway Sunday.

Around 1:40 p.m. on April 19 someone called local police to report suspicious items in the driveway of 3 Purgatory Road.

Police called the New Hampshire State Police Bomb Squad, which disarmed the devices and decided they contained aluminum foil, and “some kind of toilet bowl cleaner,” according to Lyndeborough police.

There were no injuries, and police continue to investigate.

On Tuesday, state Trooper Jeffrey Dade said that this time of year such bombs are pretty typical all around the state. Most likely the offender was a juvenile or young adult who intended it for thrills, not injury.
