GRAND FORKS - A farmer's discovery of a pipe bomb Monday about seven miles southeast of Grand Forks led officials to deploy a robot and a technician to defuse the device.


Authorities received a report shortly before noon of a suspicious object on a gravel road about a mile west of Walle Lutheran Church.

Lt. Tracy Meidinger said the regional bomb squad went to the scene and found a 5-inch metal pipe bomb.
