Bomb found under vehicle at Tucson-area restaurant

MARANA, Ariz. — Authorities said a device found under a car at a Marana
restaurant over the weekend was a bomb.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said the device
found Sunday under a car at a Hooters restaurant was an improvised explosives
device.

Police were called late Sunday afternoon by an unidentified Tucson man who
spotted the device after leaving the restaurant and returning to his car.

Police evacuated 200 people from the restaurant and a nearby bowling alley
while they investigated. The Pima County regional bomb squad then neutralized
the device.

Bureau spokesman Tom Manigan said the device has been sent to a bureau
laboratory for detailed analysis, including DNA testing.

No arrests have been made.
