IED found on Brownsville highway overpass in April 2011


The Brownsville Herald
BROWNSVILLE — Police are trying to determine who left an IED — or improvised explosive device — on the southbound land of U.S. Expressway 77/83 on Sunday afternoon.
A concerned citizen found the device about 4:54 p.m., police spokesman Eddie Garcia said.
Authorities shut down the southbound lane of the Expressway from Farm-to-Market Road 1732 to Alton Gloor for about three hours, while the police department’s bomb squad checked the device, Garcia said.
At about 6:45 p.m. the bomb squad “rendered the device safe,” Garcia said. The southbound lane of the expressway was reopened at 8 p.m.
Police are investigating how the IED ended up on the expressway.
No other details were immediately available.
