Carencro Suspect Says Pipe Bombs Were For Fishing

CARENCRO, La. (AP) — A suspect charged with possessing explosives told police that the homemade pipe bombs that caused the evacuation of eight homes in Carencro were intended for fishing.

Police found two homemade explosives in a truck stopped on Wednesday.

The pipe bombs caused the evacuation of eight homes for several hours.

Two men were arrested. One of them allegedly told officers that a “friend of his makes the pipe bombs and uses them for fishing.”

The use of explosive or electric devices for fishing is illegal, but there have been reported cases of such methods in Louisiana.

The method is used to send shock waves through water either “shocking” or killing multiple fish at once, which are then collected as their bodies float to the water’s surface.
