By Howard Ludwig Daily Southtown CHICAGO — What police suspected was a pipe bomb instead was a potato chip can at a cigarette shop Wednesday in suburban Chicago, police said. Merrionette Park police Sgt. Jon Bruce said the device was not an explosive — but was made to look like one. A Cook County sheriff’s department officer detonated the fake bomb at 7:30 p.m. near Tobacco City, 3281 115th St. in Merrionette Park.

Police and fire personnel from the county, Chicago and Merrionette Park surrounded the store after receiving a report about a possible pipe bomb at Stonebrook Plaza shopping center, officials said. Customers at nearby shops said they were asked by police to evacuate the plaza. ©2018 Chicago Tribune
