Pipe Bomb Reports Unfounded: Deputies

A report of a pipe bomb in unincorporated La Mesa Friday turned out to be unfounded, according to sheriff's officials. 

Around 12:30 p.m., a person called 911 to report what appeared to be a pipe bomb inside the garage of a home in the 3900-block of Dorsie Lane. 

Deputies evacuated nearby homes on Dorsie and Julie lanes while bomb and arson technicians investigated the report. 

They found no evidence of a bomb in the area, and around 2:30 p.m., they cleared the scene.
