Bomb Squad Finds “Military Starter Kit” in Nestor Home

A suspicious device investigation at Nestor home led to the discovery of an illicit "military starter kit" inside a girl's room.

An emergency call came in at 4:40 p.m. Thursday from a home in the 2000 block of Grove Avenue.

San Diego Police say a mother told them her 20-year-old daughter had something in her room that seemed suspicious.

Investigators called in a bomb squad to determine if that item posed a threat. Sgt. Brad O'Donnell said inside the room, the team found a "military starter kit," which the woman was not supposed to have. He did not specify what that kit contained.

However, they say the items were not an immediate threat.

The daughter has been detained for questioning.

Officials suspect the kit was taken from a military post somewhere, and they will continue investigating it.
