8-inch Robot Wreaks Rush-hour Havoc, Brings Out Denver Bomb Squad

Denver Police Department Bomb Squad detonated the “suspicious object” an approximately 8-inch-tall figurine, bringing to an end the hours-long of the city. Denver police spokesman Matt Murray said:

8-inch robot closes Denver streets

“a citizen called police at 3:27 p.m. to report the presence of the plastic, white, toy robot, cemented to the base of a pillar supporting a footbridge near 20th and Wazee streets. Police closed 20th Street between Blake Street and Chestnut Place but did let a few people past the police tape to retrieve cars parked in nearby lots.

Nobody was allowed within about 100 yards of the robot.

A bomb-squad robot was sent to examine the troublesome robot. Then a bomb- squad officer, dressed in heavy protective gear, took a turn.

Murray said the bomb squad couldn’t be sure whether the robot was safe, so the squad remotely detonated it about 5:30 p.m. to “render it safe.” The robot exploded into several chunks.

“It was cemented in. That’s odd,” Murray said.

Murray said police have no leads on who put the robot there or why they did it.”
