Ontario Police found a "works" bomb that exploded in the mailbox of a local business on South Rock Road Wednesday evening. Capt. Dale Myers said the 2-liter "works" bomb was found at 8:42 p.m. in the mail box of Speck Builders & Snow Removal at 164 S. Rock Road. Myers said evidence was recovered at the scene and the incident remains under investigation. A "works" bomb is described as a Drano and aluminum foil mixed inside a bottle. The chemical reaction makes a volatile build-up of gases and subsequently detonates the bottle with a great amount of force. The amount of force generated at the time of the explosion can severe fingers, cause second- or third-degree chemical burns or blindness. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Ontario Police Department at 419-529-2115.
