An Oregon State Police detective says a pipe bomb discovered in the Eastern Oregon city of Boardman would have damaged a mobile home park if it had exploded.

Detective Dennis Wagner told the East Oregonian newspaper that the bomb’s potential blast radius was at least 100 yards.

Two women found the unusual-looking device Saturday while cleaning up at Boardman’s Community Pride Day. It turned out to be a pipe bomb with explosive powder and 4-inch nails to create shrapnel.

Police have no suspects in the case.
