HOUSTON – Authorities discovered a pipe bomb Thursday afternoon at a bank robbery suspect’s northeast Houston apartment.

Police have blocked off Cavalcade Street between Lockwood Drive and Hoffman Street as a precaution. They do not know yet if the pipe bomb is real or a dud.

A bomb technician has entered the apartment located at the Cavalcade Plaza Homes.

The discovery is connected to a bank robbery in Atascocita that happened on Wednesday. Police were searching one of the bank robbery suspect’s apartment when they found the pipe bomb.
