APD headquarters blocked to public after man drops off ‘homemade bomb’ for disposal

A man who wanted to dispose of what he called a friend’s “homemade bomb” brought it to Anchorage police headquarters Tuesday afternoon, a spokeswoman said, prompting police to block access to the building or parking lot as a bomb squad investigated the device.

The man who delivered it was not trying to threaten police, said Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Renee Oistad.

A friend had “contacted him and had what he called a homemade bomb,” she said outside of the headquarters building Tuesday. “He simply brought it here because he thought it was the best place to have it disposed of.”

As of about 3:30 p.m., police didn’t know how the device was made, or if it is actually a functioning explosive.
