Posted: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

JUNEAU - The Juneau Police Department Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team investigated an incendiary device Monday morning at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

The police received a call at about 9:30 a.m. Monday that a Forest Service employee found a suspicious device on the property. The police determined it was three aerosol cans taped together with a marine flare used as a fuse to ignite the cans. The flare was not burning when the EOD officers arrived and the cans were determined to be flammable but not hazardous.

The device was brought back to the police station and processed for any evidence that it may contain.

Anyone with information about the device or anyone potentially involved is asked to contact JPD at 586-0600 or the Juneau Crime Lab at 586-4243.
