Washington State Geocache pipebomb scare.

You would think that the police in a city that is a suburb of Seattle, where Geocaching originated, would know about Geocaching but according to this story I guess not.

According to My Edmond News two fishermen noticed a camouflaged PVS pipe near a public boat ramp and contacted the local police. The police brought in their bomb squad which identified it as a pipe bomb and disposed of it.

The crazy part about this story is the cache owner, Doug Waterman, contacted the police and informed him that it was a geocache. The local bomb squad still insists it is a pipe bomb! Sounds a bit like something Barney Fife would do!
