PORT VINCENT — It was after 4 p.m. on Thursday afternoon when Port Vincent Police officers stopped a car and found what they believe was a pipe bomb in Livingston Parish.

Port Vincent Police confirm to Unfiltered with Kiran that the pipe bomb turned out to be a dud, but officials did wait on a bomb squad to come out.

The traffic stop, that lasted several hours, was made off Hwy. 16 near Cambre Rd. close to Clio St. in Port Vincent in Livingston Parish.

According to the Department of Homeland and Security, a pipe bomb is usually a homemade explosive device that can be lethal both from the blast and from the fragments of the casing.

Details are limited at this time as to what led up to the traffic stop. Officials confirm after officers found the pipe bomb, they requested a bomb squad, which would be either Louisiana State Police or the FBI responding to the scene, to assist in disabling the device.

Numerous other agencies assisted on the scene. Investigators are still piecing together exactly what happened, but did release some details requesting UWK to put out what all was known saying there were several people from the immediate area asking why there was such a large presence of law enforcement in Port Vincent. It’s unclear at this time if any arrests have been made.

As soon as more details are provided into the Livingston Parish pipe bomb, the article will be updated.
