Police detonate pipe bomb in man's car

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s bomb squad detonated a pipe bomb Saturday night that belonged to a Glendale man in his 40s.

The man, whose name was not released, drove to Glendale Police headquarters at 9 p.m. Saturday with the pipe bomb in his car to turn it over, officials said.

Accompanied by family members, he parked across the street from the building entrance on Isabel Street, then walked into the building to speak with officers at the front desk.

“He was coming seeking assistance and advice,” Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz told the Glendale News-Press.

When Glendale officers discovered the pipe bomb in the car, they blocked off access to the building and the 100 block of North Isabel Street and called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s bomb squad for assistance.
