Good day for pipe bombs.

The Palo Verde nuclear power plant, the largest in the United States, was sealed off on Friday after security guards found a pipe bomb in a worker’s pickup truck as he tried to enter the facility, officials said.

The California Highway Patrol has shut down both northbound and southbound I-5 from the 52 to the 805 merge after a suspicious device was found on the side of the road. A suspect with a pipe bomb was taken into custody, and reportedly told police he threw at least one other on the side of the road. Bomb squad units are at the scene and plan to detonate the device.
