On Sunday, November 17th, the police were called to the 10th Ave N. and interstate 95 intersection around 5 PM after a woman reportedly found a bomb in her shed.

The new resident was cleaning out her shed when she found an item that she thought was a bomb. Deputies and the bomb squad were called to the scene and later found out the the “bomb” was just a prop.

Deputies removed the package from the evacuated area. PBSO says the package didn’t appear to be explosive as it’s been in the shed for “quite some time now.”

“We don’t take anything like that for granted,” said PBSO spokeswoman Teri Barbera.
