Police in Oklahoma City say no one was hurt when officers detonated a pipe bomb found in a home.

Officer Megan Morgan says police were called to an apartment on the city's northwest side shortly before 10 p.m. Monday after workers thought they had found an explosive device.

The workers said they had been hired to clean out a house and were told they could take anything they wanted. They found a lunchbox and took it to their apartment, but when they opened it they discovered what appeared to be a pipe bomb. They took it outside, placed it by a dumpster and called police.

Morgan says a bomb squad successfully detonated the device about 3 a.m. Tuesday. No property was damaged in the explosion.
