DALE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - The “all clear” has been given after a pipe bomb was discovered at the Dale County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Wally Olson said the bomb was discovered as part of evidence in an ongoing murder case. Deputies received the evidence Tuesday and Olson said the bomb was sealed in a duffel bag.

An evacuation was ordered at the Dale County Sheriff’s Office and Ozark-Dale County E-911 Center and the Dothan Bomb Squad was called to the scene.

Olson said the pipe bomb discovery is not connected to a recent arrest in the murder of Dothan teens, Tracie Hawlett and J.B. Beasley.
