As the Fourth of July approaches, local law enforcement reminds residents to call 911 to report illegal fireworks and homemade items – including tennis ball bombs.
In a recent Kent community meeting between residents and police, someone asked, “How do you identify a tennis ball bomb?”
Kent police responded: “A tennis ball bomb is very easy to identify. It is a real tennis ball that has some sort of fuse sticking out of it. The tennis ball could also be completely wrapped in duct tape with a fuse sticking out.”
The warning of tampered tennis balls go beyond just the city of Kent.
