Authorities responded again today to a report of an explosive device at Crab Cove.

Alameda police say that they and the Alameda Fire Department, the East Bay Regional Park District Police, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office received a report at 10:05 a.m. this morning that there was a possible explosive device located next to a tree at Crab Cove.

It was the second such report in less than a month.

The Alameda County Explosives Ordnance Disposal Squad examined the device and subsequently detonated it without incident. There were no injuries and the issue is being investigated by the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department. Inquiries to that agency were unanswered at press time.

After 4:00 p.m. today, East Bay Regional Parks Police Lt. Jon King released the following statement…

On July 3, 2013, approximately 9:50 a.m., East Bay Regional Park District Police were notified of a suspicious device that was located at Crown Memorial Beach, near the Glory of the Seas building at the end of McKay Street in Alameda. The suspicious device was located by the park supervisor, who was checking that area of the park.

Regional Parks Police officers responded to the scene and determined that the device was possibly an explosive device. It was described as a capped cylindrical tube with a fuse-like object attached. Alameda Police and Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene. Portions of the park and McKay Street were closed during the incident.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad responded to the scene and confirmed that the device was possibly explosive in nature. The device was safely detonated in place. No damage or injuries occurred as a result of the detonation. McKay Street and the park were reopened.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the East Bay Regional Parks Police at (510) 881-1833.
