Hazardous bottles found in Garfield County

Hazardous bottle
hazardous bottle

February 13, 2018 - Over the past week, residents of Garfield, Eagle, and Pitkin counties have encountered an influx of bottles turning up on riverbanks. The bottles are similar in size to a water bottle, but are easily recognizable as they have all been mostly encapsulated in duct tape.

In most instances, the bottles have been filled with a blue or purple liquid and a paper-like substance. The contents of the bottles are corrosive and flammable; furthermore, the contents are hazardous to human health.

If encountered, do not move, touch, or open the bottles. Instead, note the location and immediately contact your local law enforcement representatives.
