Community Awareness Alert – Possible Explosive Device

Recently in Glendale and Phoenix there have been incidents where flashlights, similar to the one pictured below, have been placed in random locations where almost any person would have access to it.  The lights had been rigged to explode when turned on, causing injuries to those who picked them up and even people very close by.

If you see a similar object or any objects that look out of place, do not touch them, call the police. The Chandler Police Department non emergency number is 480-782-4130.  Provide a detailed description of the item and its location, stay away from the item and we would encourage callers to keep others away from the item, letting them know the police have been called.
