An overnight explosion damaged a police car in a Maryland town on Wednesday night.
According to the Frederick News Post, authorities believe a metal pipe bomb on the marked police SUV in Thurmont. The bomb exploded on the hood and windshield of the car, which an officer had parked outside his home for the night. No one was injured in the blast.
The investigation into where the pipe bomb came from is still underway. Chief Greg Eyler said authorities would check hardware stores and other locations to figure out where the metal pipe was purchased. The incident sent federal authorities to the scene to investigate as they look to determine what the bomb was made of. They are collecting evidence and sending it to a lab in Beltsville for analysis.
