Authorities find second homemade bomb in Salem

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - Salem firefighters and the State Fire Marshal are investigating the discovery of a second homemade bomb in recent weeks.

A gasoline filled bottle was found in an alley near a South Broadway Avenue restaurant early Thursday.

It's the second Molotov cocktail found in the area in a week.

The owner of the restaurant has a message for the person or persons who may be responsible for planting the bombs near his business.

"Get a job. Why take a chance on hurting someone and maybe putting 15 people out of work here," said Jim Augusta, owner of DeRienzo's Italian Foods.

Police say they do not have any suspects at this time.
