The device was thrown at a police patrol in the Ballycolman estate last month.
A member of the public then lifted the device and moved it to an area of waste ground in a former factory site.
In the resulting security alert, army bomb disposal experts examined the device and, following a controlled explosion, declared the object to be a viable pipe bomb type device.
At the time, police said the attack was a deliberate attempt to kill officers.
On Wednesday, a man in his 40s was arrested by police investigating the incident. He was taken to Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning, before being released later that evening.
