UPDATE: A Norfolk, NE man has been cited for "pop-bottle" bombs


A Norfolk Nebraska man has been cited following the discovery of a "pop-bottle" bombs on the campus of Northeast Community College. 

Norfolk police officials say 18-year old Reid Alden was cited today for possession of a destructive device.

Officials say three devices had already exploded Tuesday evening, while a fourth larger bomb was found on campus Wednesday that had not exploded, prompting a brief lock down of the dorms.

"The Norfolk Police and Fire Departments were notified that some homemade bottle devices were found outside the Burkhardt residence hall," said Mary Honke, executive vice president of Northeast Community College. "The college was in lock down only in the area impacted as directed by Norfolk Police. The area near Burkhardt Hall where the device was located was secured. Access was restricted to that area," she said.

Fire Chief Scott Cordes says no one was injured, and no evacuation was needed.

Honke said four students are being questioned in regards to the incident. There's been no word of any arrests related to the incident.

Evidence is being sent to the crime lab.

The investigation continues.  Stay tuned for updates on ktiv.com and KTIV-TV.
