Police disarm PVC-pipe bomb discovered in Pomona hospital – San Bernardino Sun

Pomona police were investigating the source of a bomb that was safely disarmed at a hospital in Pomona.

The Pomona Police Department’s dispatch center received a call at approximately 9 p.m Monday from the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Security staff at 1798 N. Garey Ave. after a PVC pipe with endcaps was discovered, along with a fuse on a person who was brought into the hospital by ambulance from West Covina, said Cpl. Jason Conley.

Officers set up a perimeter and contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which took possession of the device and disarmed it, Conley said.

Investigators determined that the medical center was not the target of the device and the hospital was not evacuated but as a precaution the main entrance to the emergency room was shut down and ambulances were rerouted to other hospitals for approximately one hour.
