Hoax Device in Linden Causes Scare, Evacuation

Police and bomb squad in Linden, New Jersey, have dismantled a hoax device found between two residential buildings on a city block, law enforcement sources say. The suspicious device was found on the 1100 block of West St. Georges Ave. Tuesday evening, and was determined to be a hoax bomb.  Homes in the area were evacuated as police responded. "Cops banged on our door, said our lives were in danger," said Anthony Smith.  Mayor Derek Armstead told NBC 4 New York photos of the device showed a bunch of dynamite-looking objects tied together with tape, with a device attached to it.   The Union County bomb squad and Linden police used a robot to "disrupt" the device as a protective measure. A neighbor said he heard the boom as the robot moved in.  Residents were allowed back into their homes by late Tuesday night.
