WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A police bomb squad has removed a suspected explosive device from a home in Waterloo.

Officers were sent to the home in the 200 block of Monroe Street around 1 a.m. Monday to check on what was reported to be a suspicious item. The bomb squad was called in to remove the device and disarm it. Police say the device was a carbon dioxide cartridge with a fuse.
