Long Beach, Wa. – Long Beach Police have a person of interest in connection with two bombs found on Monday. Chief Flint Wright will only say the person of interest is male.
He says the bombs were found near a fence along the main approach to the beach. He says the Washington State Patrol Bomb Squad which detonated the devices told him ” these devices were meant to kill someone. The state patrol told us they would have been lethal within a 50 foot radius.”
He is asking if you see anything suspicious in Long Beach to leave it alone and call 9-1-1. He also says “we’re going to be a whole lot more hyper-vigilant when we look at these things than we were.”
The bombs contained shrapnel, gunshot shells and what appears to be rat poison.
