A possible pipe bomb was found in the 1100 block of E. Marshall Street on Monday morning, reports Turlock police.

The possible bomb was discovered at approximately 8:05 a.m. Monday and Turlock police and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad responded to the area, said Turlock police spokesperson Sgt. Stephen Webb.

Residents in the area received a robocall telling them to stay inside during the investigation and police had a portion of E. Marshall Street blocked off.

The device was taken by the bomb squad and it is unknown at this time if it was real or fake, said Webb.

Authorities cleared the area around 10:30 a.m.

There are no suspects at this time.

    I have some advice for people that say Turlock is a bad place. I've been in this town since it was a one lane town. I remember when the freeway went right through town. if people don't like my town, Do something to fix it or stop complaining. or just look right over there on Lander or over there towards the end of Monte Vista you'll find a freeway onramp. Put you direction you wish to go and go somewhere and better. Then, after all the people that don't like this town are gone, the rest of us will enjoy the extra space. the point is fix it or quit griping about it.

    I hope someone from the Sheriffs might be able to answer my question here. My wife and I were traveling west on Main St. Monday on our way to the coast, when we saw the Bomb squad truck traveling down the road near us a car length or two away. I joked with my wife that they must be transporting a bomb in there not knowing they actually were. In all seriousness, what distance should we "general public" stay away from this truck when traveling. Maybe we should have pulled to the side of the road for 10 min or something. Should lights and or sirens been active if the truck poses an actual bomb danger?
