COSTA MESA An explosive device was detonated by the Orange County Sheriff Department’s bomb squad Sunday, June 18, after it was found on the front lawn of a Costa Mesa home, police said.
Costa Mesa police officers were called to the 900 block of Darrell Street at around 6 p.m. after the homeowner discovered what appeared to be a firework-looking device wrapped in plastic with an exposed fuse, said Costa Mesa police Sgt. Matt Selinske.
The bomb squad arrived and blew the device up inside a bomb-proof container, Selinske said.
The incident and the device remain under investigation by the bomb squad
