Bomb-Making Materials Found in Bloomingdale Garage

The Passaic County Bomb Squad was called to a Roy Avenue home Sunday to assist with removing bomb-making materials from a resident's garage.

The materials, believed to be used to detonate explosive devices, were found in the garage of the resident who called police himself to report the "suspicious items," according to Bloomingdale police Ptl. Dan Fletcher. Officers arrived on the scene around 11:30 a.m. after the resident said he was unsure how the items got in the garage.

"There were no signs of entry into the garage prior to the resident entering," Fletcher said in a report.

The bomb squad removed the items and no injuries were reported. Bloomingdale police Sgt. Robert Ressland Ptl. Marc Loveland assisted.
