MOSCOW -- Authorities say a bomb squad has been dispatched to disarm an explosive that was turned in to the Latah County Sheriff's office.

The office says what appears to be a pipe bomb-type explosive was located in a car Saturday night that was sitting in front of the office.

Sheriff's Lt. Brannon Jordan tells the Moscow-Pullman Daily News that a man found a 6-inch pipe capped at both ends with what looks like a fuse along Paradise Ridge Road Saturday afternoon.

He brought it to the station and authorities left it in his empty car until the Spokane County Bomb Squad could safely dispose of it.
