HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Hunting and trapping has been banned in seven northeastern Pennsylvania townships after police found explosive devices allegedly left by the suspect in last month’s deadly ambush at a state police barracks.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission issued the ban on Wednesday, one day after state police revealed that two pipe bombs were found in the woods where 31-year-old Eric Frein (freen) is believed to be hiding.

Hunting and trapping is prohibited until further notice on all public and private lands in Blooming Grove, Porter, Lehman and Greene townships in Pike County and Barrett, Price and Paradise townships in Monroe County.

State game lands in the seven townships are closed to the public altogether. Portions of state game lands 180, 183 and 221 are impacted.
