Junaluska materials NOT explosive PDF Print
Friday, 21 December 2007 06:24


Materials found earlier this month at an abandoned house on Junaluska Road are not explosives, police say.


Boone Police Department and Wilkes Bomb Squad discovered the materials and a rifle in the home after receiving an anonymous tip. Officials say the item seized appears to be some type of hoax device connected to a fake blasting cap.

A Hillsborough resident, who police say was unaware of any suspicious activity, owns the abandoned house. The home has been vacant for sometime.


Police are still looking for the person or persons responsible for making the device.

Anyone with information is asked to call Boone Police Department at 828-262-4500.
