Portions of East Viking Boulevard near the City of Wyoming was shut down over the weekend after a homemade bomb was discovered on the roadway.
Upon discovery, authorities called in the St. Paul Bomb Squad to assist law enforcement in making the IED inert.
Multiple commenters on social media tried to chalk the device up to stupid kids; however, the location of the device is a cause of extra concern for authorities.
The Wyoming Police responded to one commenter's theory saying, "I mean pretty sure in the middle of a roadway increases the likelihood of someone potentially being present to be harmed."
Thankfully, no one was injured by the device.
