Homemade bombs were found in a child’s Superman lunchbox left on a rural road in Jonesboro.

Pill bottles loaded with BB pellets, nails and gun powder were inside the lunchbox, according to a report from our sister station WREG in Memphis.

Jesse James found the lunchbox.

“I looked at and picked up two or three bottles, I said, ‘Get your hands off it, I’m calling the police department.  I already know what it is, it’s bombs’” James said.

Police haven’t made an arrest, but they have an idea of who might be behind the bombs because of a name on one of the prescription bottles. Click here to read the full story from WREG.com.
