Suspicious package was fake foot-long plastic penis

The “suspicious package” that caused Interstate 75 and Daniels Parkway to be shut for more than an hour Monday was not an explosive pipe bomb — but rather wrapped-up plastic foot-long penis.

“Someone took construction-grade plastic, molded it into a penis and wrapped it with duct tape,” said Lee County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Charles Ferrante.

“They wrote ‘Happy Father’s Day’ on the duct tape.”

The device was first described by the sheriff’s office as a prosthetic penis. Later, it cops described it as a paper sculpture made to look like a penis.

"(The rumor that it was actually a vibrator) just took a life of it's own," said Cpl. Larry King.

Ferrante later spoke with a member of the bomb squad who described it in more detail.

“Somebody molded it to look like a penis,” Ferrante said. “It was not detected until the suspicious package was removed.”

A motorist called the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Monday shortly after 3 p.m. about a suspicious package on the side of the road under the northbound Interstate 75 overpass.

The cylinder was more than a foot long in a plastic bag and wrapped with duct tape. It looked like pipe bomb and was in a position that could cause structural damage.

Deputies arrived and alerted the bomb squad, which used a robot to disable the cylinder. The north- and southbound lanes of Intestate 75 were closed for about an hour between Alico Road and Colonial Boulevard. Traffic was blocked on Daniels Parkway at the overpass for an hour while the device was removed.

The closures left the heart of Lee County's road system without any vehicles as rush hour approached. After the drama ensued there were back-ups for about 15 minutes, but then traffic cleared to its normal levels.

I guess you cant be too careful nowadays!

Interesting, and probably a little embarrasing, to the Bomb Sqad.

You really have to stand back when those things go off you know?

Sell it on E-Bay or mass produce it..........

It would be so funny to have a massive vibrating penis in your home.
And it's too bad that we tend to hide our predelictions in western society.

LET THE SUPER PHALLUS BE FREE......
REJOICE IN ITS FERTILITY..................
ENJOY................................................

LOL what makes this even funnier is all the names they called this alledged bomb.



I think its only one thing, especially when the story above says "the prosthetic took on a life of its own"

They found it!!!


I have a confession to make.....I am the model they used
to mold this piece of art. Yes it is true.

That is MY mold.


I did it for charity....it was supposed to be auctioned.

Must have fallen into the wrong hands

while the story is hysterical, there's something I don't understand. Don't they normally detonate suspicious packages? That would make the discovery of a plastic love rocket a bit on the hard side (erect side?).


Did the bomb squad inspect the package and get a certain "vibe" telling them that the device was not a threat?

I live in Naples and i was stuck in the traffic jam. I was headed to Ft myers, for work. I even watched the bomb squad get ready. It was really funny. I kept thinking of Danny Glover and Mel Gibson from the movie Lethal Weapon : "No No No Rigs! Its the red wire!" "RIGS!"
