BREAKING: BOMB Explodes at Marine Charity Run, Neighborhood In Lockdown. [VIDEO]

Thousands of people were about to participate in a charity 5K race to benefit Marines and sailors when the entire thing got shut down. Authorities are evacuating the area including dozens of homes due to the discovery of a pipe bomb that was detonated in the early am.

The bomb was in a garbage bag and bomb sniffing dogs were used to search the area for more. The dogs found even more bombs in the same area that hadn’t detonated. The lucky part is that the race was delayed because a backpack was left unattended.

“We’ve evacuated within a four-block perimeter,” the spokesman Al Della Fave told the paper. “Traffic into Seaside Park is closed, but (motorists) are allowed to go to Seaside Heights. We have various K9s throughout the area, bomb dogs that are making sure the area is safe and secure,” a law enforcement official told WCBS 880.
