The eight suspicious devices that New Orleans police discovered inside an abandoned pickup truck in a Mid-City bank parking lot contained chemicals that could have caused an explosion, according to an NOPD spokesman. The devices contained a combustible compound, according to officer Frank Robertson III.
. . . .
About 9:30 a.m., a mounted police officer working a detail was alerted to the suspicious Ford F-150 pickup that had been in the parking lot all weekend.
The officer, who has military experience, opened the truck’s door, and found what appeared to be two incidiary devices sizzling and smoking inside, Robertson said.
I’m assuming they mean incendiary devices. Scary either way.
