The viable device found in a residential area of Lurgan has been made safe.
PSNI Inspector Leslie Badger, Neighbourhood Policing Team, E District said: “The consequences had this device detonated do not bear thinking about. Obviously the people responsible have little regard for human life.
“This is a residential area and we are all extremely thankful that this device was detected and that no one was killed or seriously injured.”
SDLP MLA for Upper Bann, Delores Kelly said: “It is a stark reminder of the Troubles and the past which no one wants to be reminded of, and for which there is no support.
“Thankfully the device was detected and made safe, but whoever is responsible has absolutely no regard for the community.”
