While working with Geneva Police Department to investigate a threats complaint, one of our officers took a suspect in to custody. It was discovered that the suspect had in his possession what appeared to be a possible incendiary device. As a precaution, we contacted the Kane County Bomb & Arson Squad to assist and evacuated some nearby residents. That suspicious device has been deemed safe but as a further precaution we are checking a vehicle and residence in the area.
UPDATE 10/15/19 5:30 p.m.: Residents who had been evacuated are allowed back in to the area. We are continuing to investigate this incident along with the Geneva Police Department.
More details to follow as they become available.
