"Basically your simple pipe bomb" a police officer told a reporter. One that most likely was left in a basement by Wayne Prater.

Prater has been harassing the mother of his three children for the last month since he has been released from prsion. Just excellent. In the past few weeks he has broken into her home and flooded it and stole items. That's great when your three kids have to live there as well.

Residents of Chew Avenue had to clear out as specialists defused or capped off the bomb. Not surprisingly Prater has a long rap sheet. Someone had made a 911 call previously and said that the mother of the children had a pipe bomb in her house and was going to hurt the children. LE reached out to her and determined this was not the case and all was safe.

Until.............ya truly got a pipe bomb in your basement.
