MARSHFIELD (CBS) — Two $5,000 awards have been offered for information about a pipe bomb found on a Marshfield street, last month.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the pipe bomb recovered at 283 Ocean Street on April 27.

Additionally, the Massachusetts Arson Watch Program is offering a reward of up to $5,000.

The homemade pipe bomb was reportedly wrapped in electrical tape with wires sticking out of it.
