Fake bomb causes havoc in Fishers

February 23, 2011

A fake pipe bomb caused major delays Tuesday for dozens of people who use an IndyGo Park and Ride lot in Fishers. A commuter was about to go home for the day at about 5 p.m. when he found the device in the front seat of his car, parked in the lot near 106th Street and Lantern Road. A note with the words “last chance” was attached to the device. The Fishers Police Department, Indiana State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol Firearms and Tobacco secured the area and diverted traffic for almost four hours before determining the realistic-looking device was a hoax.  Forty to 50 cars were parked in the lot at the time.
