Devices taken from car dealership after bomb scare

Updated:

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A woman dropped off beer cans designed to be potential Molotov cocktails at a DeKalb County car dealership, police said.

The woman who dropped off the devices Tuesday used to work at the dealership, according to two dealership employees.

The employees told Channel 2’s Erica Byfield that the woman showed up Monday with some car trouble. She showed up again on Tuesday with the devices.

A witness said the woman walked in and put the devices on the car dealership owner’s desk. One is a beer bottle wrapped in tape and the other has some kind of white paper sticking out the top.

“They have done an X-ray of the devices and determined that the contents remained suspicious,” Gene Calloway with the Doraville Police Department said.

“They will be transporting them to an alternate location so they can examine them further.”

Mike Howard works at the car dealership and said he saw the devices too.

Howard said he did not have time to ask questions because police told him to leave.

“I was outside working and when I came in, they told us to vacate,” he said.

Police blocked off New Peachtree Road as they investigated.

Employees told Channel 2’s Erica Byfield they do not know much about the woman who dropped off the devices.

Officers confiscated the devices and bomb squad members used a robot to investigate the area.

No arrests have been made at this time in connection with the devices, according to police.
