WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita woman had a nasty surprise when she discovered a pipe bomb among items she brought home from a self-storage unit.

KSNW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/12LhXnJ ) the explosive device turned up Thursday while the woman was going through bags of items she retrieved from the storage unit to prepare for a garage sale.

The device was described as a length of plastic pipe with a fuse sticking out. The woman called police, who summoned the bomb squad and cleared parts of the neighborhood. The bomb squad detonated the device without incident.

Police are trying to figure out who put the pipe bomb in the storage unit, which the woman shared with another person.
