Bombs discovered at Georgia Tech in Atlanta

Michelle Malkin provides coverage of more discoveries of bomb materials, in Atlanta, and even in Gwinnett County, Georgia, and at the UCLA in California. From Atlanta's WXIA-TV:
Three explosive devices found in a courtyard between two Georgia Tech dormitories on the East Campus Monday morning were part of a "terrorist act," an Atlanta police official said.

One of the devices exploded, injuring the custodian who found them inside a plastic bag. Two others were detonated by a bomb squad.

The custodian suffered ringing to the ears and was treated at a local hospital. The events led to a temporary evacuation Monday morning.

"It is a terrorist act at this point and depending on the outcome of the investigation it potentially could become a federal violation as well," said Major C.W. Moss of the Atlanta Police Department.

The custodian found the three devices about 9 a.m. in a plastic-type garbage bag, Moss said. When he picked up the bag, one exploded, as it was designed to do when handled. The explosives were made up of chemicals placed inside plastic bottles and could have seriously injured someone, officials said. Numerous agencies were on the Georgia Tech campus to search for suspects...
Remember what Mark Tapscott pointed out about Joel Henry Hinrichs III having "13 plastic bottles" kept in his car, and you'll get an even clearer picture of what he was apparently doing.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a report of a suspicious device found in a parking lot in Gwinnett County:
A busy Gwinnett County intersection was shut down for about two hours Monday morning after a suspicious device was found in a parking lot, police said.

The "very suspicious device, about the size of a mini-flashlight," was discovered shortly before 9 a.m. in the parking lot of the QT gas station at Satellite Boulevard and Merchant's Way near Gwinnett Place Mall, said Gwinnett police spokesman Darren Moloney.

The gas station, as well as a nearby restaurant and strip shopping center, were evacuated, and police closed off the intersection.

Moloney said the device was rendered safe and removed by the arson squad, and the roads and businesses were reopened by 11:15 a.m.

No further information was released about the device.
And Prof. Stephen Bainbridge provides a report on another explosive device found at the UCLA last Friday:
A calm and quiet Westwood was briefly disrupted Friday afternoon when the Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad inspected and detonated an explosive device found within the Midvale Plaza apartment complex on the 500 block of Midvale Avenue.

After responding to a call made at 11:13 a.m., the bomb squad arrived at 527 Midvale Ave. to find "an improvised explosive device" in the building's open-air courtyard, said Grace Brady, a spokeswoman for the LAPD.

No injuries were reported, but authorities have been slow to release details about the incident and the device.

Residents said they first heard a small explosion sometime between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Friday, but most said they went back to sleep. It was not until a resident found an explosive device later that morning that the police were called.
Now maybe it's just a coincidence, but, as Bainbridge says:
...when coupled with the recent University of Oklahoma bombing, one also hopes that there will be a complete investigation.

Thanks for the link. I hadn't heard about the one in Gwinnett county, but I saw someone talk about one a few days ago in UCLA.

I'm certainly glad that so far, there haven't been any casualties, and that the police in Georgia have been taking responsible steps.
