BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - An Adams County fisherman is safe after he reeled in a pipe bomb on Sunday and it was quickly disabled by a bomb squad.

The sheriff’s office says the bomb was found at Barr Lake State Park northeast of Denver. Investigators say the unidentified fisherman was near a boat ramp when reeled it in and turned it over to park rangers.

The Adams County Bomb Squad determined it could be a dangerous explosive device and disabled it. Pieces of the bomb have been collected as evidence.

Authorities are still trying to determine who left the bomb in the lake.
