Bomb Squad, HazMat teams remove dangerous material from Eskridge home
The Riley Co. Police Department's bomb squad and hazardous material response team, along with multiple law enforcement agencies, all responded to an Eskridge home on Tuesday.
According to the Wabaunsee Co. Sheriff's Office, a family reported there may be explosive material inside a home, at 210 Mulberry St. The response teams located "dangerous and hazardous" items and removed them.
The Sheriff's Office did not say what the items were.
The hazardous materials were taken outside of town where they could be destroyed, with the Sheriff's Office thanking Tim Widau specifically for letting them use his property to do it.
