Bomb Sits Unnoticed in Federal Bldg Lost-and-Found...for Three Weeks

Print comment Post Comments
With some sort of fuss regarding government contractors being raised on a seemingly daily basis, a private security guard in Detroit picked a lousy time to toss a bomb -- yes, a bomb -- onto the lost-and-found pile in a Detroit federal office building.

From Reuters:

A private contract guard, since suspended, apparently found the package outside in late February, said David Wright, president of the union that represents Federal Protective Service guards but not contract guards.

The building in downtown Detroit houses offices for the FBI, U.S. Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, the Social Security Administration and others.

The guard brought the package into the building and put it in "lost and found" without having it screened, Wright said. It sat until March 18, when someone decided to X-ray the package and found that it might contain a bomb, he said.

Well, I'll be! It did contain a bomb!

The Detroit PD bomb squad detonated the device earlier today.
