Pipe Bomb Found Near Train Tracks in Ballston Spa

There were some tense moments in Ballston Spa on Wednesday, as someone left a pipe bomb near railroad tracks off Zepko Lane, only about 30 yards from the popular Zim Smith hiking trail. 

Sheriff Michael Zurlo says Amtrak service was suspended during the investigation. 

The device was later deemed to be safe, and will be taken to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia for further testing.
