Soda-bottle bomb information sought

Sylvania Township police are seeking information about the Aug. 19 placement of soda-bottle bombs in the 4300 and 4500 blocks of Dovewood Lane and at Cherry Grove and Peachtree lanes.

One of the bombs exploded in the 4500 block of Dovewood and debris nearly hit Jim Schwerkoske, chairman of the township trustees, who was walking in his neighborhood about 6:30 p.m. Two men were seen placing the bottles in the street and they were possibly driving a black Pontiac Sunfire. The bottles were confiscated.

Anyone with information about the incident should call the Toledo Crime Stopper program, 419-255-1111, or township police, 419-882-1250.
