"Pipe Bomb Found Near Botanical Gardens"

Finding a pipe bomb is, sadly enough, not that strange. It happens from time to time across the United States. But, what is strange, is what the discoverer of the bomb did when he found it.


SAN ANTONIO -- A man found a pipe bomb Wednesday afternoon near the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, police said.

The man noticed the white, 6-inch device, with a green fuse lying on Lucas Street near his mini van, police said.

He picked it up, put it in his van, and called police. [emphasis added]

That doesn't sound like a particularly smart thing to do. Except for the calling the police part, that is.
