CRESCENT CITY - Humboldt County's Bomb Squad is on scene investigating an explosive device found this morning in Crescent City.

A worker at the maintenance facility on Aubell Lane discovered the explosive device as he was picking up trash. The facility was evacuated and the area was secured.

Investigators say the device looks to be a homemade improvised explosive device without a timer. They believe it will not go off.

A robot has been deployed to dismantle the device and render the area safe. Until then, law enforcement rangers are continuing to secure the area.
