Suspected bombs found at Ohio post offices


ATHENS, Ohio - Two devices that appeared to be pipe bombs were found at separate Ohio post offices yesterday, and both buildings were evacuated as a precaution, authorities said.

No injuries were reported.

Columbus fire bomb squads, the FBI, a Postal Service inspector, and local authorities examined the objects found in the small towns of Guysville and Stewart.

The device in Guysville was later determined not to be explosive, Athens County spokesman Tracy Galway said. It wasn't immediately clear if the device in Stewart was a bomb.
