Another pipe bomb found near Tyler


– Authorities say another suspected pipe bomb has been reported in east Texas, four days after the discovery of a similar device that turned out to be fake.

U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokesman Tom Crowley says investigators are working to determine whether the device found Monday outside a Tyler business was an actual bomb.

Crowley says a reported pipe bomb found last week in Troup was fake.

There have been at least a dozen reports of incendiary devices found in east Texas in recent weeks. Most were bottles containing flammable liquid and a wick, and most were at postal facilities.
