Explosive found in Arcata motel
ARCATA- Police are looking for the person that left an explosive inside an Arcata motel room. According to Arcata Police a can sized explosive device was found hidden inside a room by a housekeeper Wednesday night.
The owner of the motel removed the device from the room while officers were on their way said Det. Sgt. Todd Dokweiler. Police inspected the device and determined that it was inactive. The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office bomb unit were contacted to properly remove the device.
No evacuations were made because police said people were not in danger. The explosive was taken to a safe location to be detonated.
Police believe a guest of the motel left the device without the intent of it going off. Police are reviewing suspects who had access into the room.
