GRIFFITH, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a crudely made pipe bomb has been safely removed from a set of railroad tracks in northwest Indiana.

Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives spokesman Thomas Ahern says the pipe bomb was spotted in Griffith by Canadian National Railway employees Monday morning. The (Munster) Times (https://bit.ly/1Iav6Yi ) reports an all-clear was given around 1:30 p.m. after the device was removed by Porter County officials.

Ahern says the bomb is believed to be an isolated incident, and that authorities had no suspects. He says the pipe bomb wasn’t very sophisticated, and the agency plans to analyze it.
