6 ARRESTED IN SPRINGVILLE ON PIPE-BOMB CHARGES

Three adults and three juveniles were arrested Tuesday afternoon when police officers responded to reports of pipe bombs being set off near 850 N. Main.

Lt. Oliver Nielsen said police were called to a field near a mobile home park at about 4 p.m., where they found what appeared to be 13 pipe bombs. One of the bombs was constructed out of 2-inch galvanized steel and was 14 inches long, he said."It looks like they were setting some of them off just for fun, in a field," Nielsen said.
