Corbin, Kentucky Police Chief David Campbell found a makeshift bomb outside his home over the weekend. The bomb was three grenades that were tied together. Authorities are now investigating who is responsible.
Campbell awoke around 3:15 on Sunday morning when he heard what he thought were gunshots outside his home, which is near Gordon Hill Pike.
When he went to investigate, he saw a man with a gun. After chasing the man, Chief Campbell lost him and when he returned home, he discovered the makeshift bomb.
“He actually found three grenades tied together, the fuse out of a grenade tied together with a power cord. Like a parachute cord,” says Capt. Coy Wilson.
The Kentucky State Police Hazardous Device Unit was called in along with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) agents to detonate the explosive.
So far they do not have a description of the man that was chase by the police chief, nor do they know where the explosives came from. However, it has put the police department on alert.
“It makes you a little uncomfortable, uneasy,” says Capt. Wilson.
While patrols of the neighborhood where Campbell lives, have picked up, Katherine Hill, a neighbor said, “Scares us half to death. We’d do anything we could to protect him. He would us. David would go the limit to protect us.”
If anyone has any information on this, they are advised to contact the police.
