The Monterey County sheriff’s bomb squad detonated a suspected pipe bomb Tuesday night after the device was found at the side of a popular trail, police said.

The bomb squad was alerted after officers went to the bike trail along Ocean View Boulevard near 10th Street and Berwick Park about 7 p.m. to check out the device.

The bomb squad used a remote control robot to secure the device and to fire an explosive charge that destroyed it. There was explosive material in the device, McSorley said.
