Mysterious Explosions Persist in Phoenix and Glendale, Arizona. Listen to audio.

“It’s a big blast. It’s definitely not an M-80, it’s definitely not a firework. It’s definitely some type of explosive powder ordinance.”

December 18, 2018 Phoenix and Glendale, Arizona
– Since October 2018, the Phoenix Police Department and local TV stations have received several reports of unexplained explosion sounds. Most recently on Saturday, December 15, 2018, right before 5 AM, a very loud blast woke up residents near 45th Avenue and Bethany Home in Glendale, a northwestern suburb of Phoenix. One of the earwitnesses said, “The explosion sound shook the walls and windows. It was intense, it was powerful!”

That resident told a FOX-10 TV reporter that she did not want to be identified because the woman was worried that someone “was loose in this neighborhood maliciously blowing things up.”

In this latest early morning Saturday, December 15, 2018, loud explosive sound,  a surveillance camera caught a person walking by less than 20 seconds after the loud blast as if nothing had happened. The video is not very clear, but police are hoping residents might recognize what appears to be a man.

From that same December 15, 2018, early morning explosion sound, Phoenix police have released a security camera photograph of a white pickup that they think could be related to that  mystery explosion and perhaps others, but no one has been arrested and no suspects have been named.

To date after two months of periodic reports, Phoenix and Glendale police have not been able to find any explosion evidence and have no idea what the source of the persistent explosive sounds could be in the Glendale case or in the north end Phoenix regions of 43rd Avenue to 27th Avenue; West Greenway Road to Union Hills Drive; and 35th Avenue and Bell.
