- All of a sudden, you hear that people's making bombs and putting them on your street.

- Amanda Phillips and her three kids live less than a block from where this explosive was found on Monday.

- It's crazy. I never, especially from a small town like this, you wouldn't think anything like that around here.

- The mom who found this pipe bomb put it in a baggie, placed it in her car, and took it straight to the Gibsonville police department. When she arrived, the bomb squad was called in. They evacuated the area. And law enforcement used a robot to try and safely detonate the explosive device.
