Improvised Explosive Device
On 062019 at approximately 1355 hours, the Talent Police Department (TPD) assisted Jackson County Parole/Probation officers on a search at a residence in the 100 Blk. of S. 1st Street, Talent, OR.  During the search, the homeowner (who was not the subject of the search), told officers that unknown suspect(s) left an improvised explosive device inside the residence overnight.
The TPD officer had the residents evacuate the property.
The Oregon State Police Bomb Squad was summoned to the location to assist.
The bomb squad technicians removed a suspected improvised explosive device from that location with the intent to examine it for evidence.  It will be rendered safe at another location if determined to be an explosive.
This case remains under investigation and the homeowner is cooperating.
No further details are available or will be released at this time.
