Pipe Bomb Explodes in Front of Glendale Home, Authorities Say
A serial bomber has targeted a home in a quiet Glendale neighborhood, federal authorities believe.
An explosion on Wednesday morning was the third to rock the house in 15 months.
What investigators don’t know is why.
By all accounts, the homeowners are unlikely targets for such a serious act of violence.
One of the homeowners works for the Deer Valley Unified School District, according to authorities. Neighbors said the man is a member of the homeowners’ association and his car has veteran license plates. He declined to be interviewed.
“Quite frankly, we’re puzzled,” said Tom Mangan, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “We’re looking for answers, but we just have more questions.”
The ATF is investigating the explosion along with the Glendale Police Department.
