WEST BATON ROUGE - A device found in the back of a truck on Plantation Avenue in West Baton Rouge Saturday night was a bomb.

The West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office responded to a truck behind Minnow's Truck Stop, off of Highway 415, around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The owner of the truck called police after a witness notified him of the device, according to West Baton Rouge Sheriff Mike Cazes.

State Police and Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents assisted investigators in evacuating a one block area surrounding the truck stop. The device was deactivated by a state police robot.

The investigation is ongoing.
