There are two perhaps unrelated reports about explosives found on vehicles in Florida. The circumstances are different in each instance but it is disturbing that both incidents have surfaced within days of each other.
Police said Jim Panaro drove his car to Donald's Auto Repair shop located at 57th Avenue and Johnson Street in Hollyood, Fla., after he noticed wires dangling under the car's rear bumper.

A mechanic then found the explosive.

"It was wrapped in tape and had putty underneath," a Donald's mechanic said. "So, we put it up in the air and saw a wire running on top and then called 911 right away."

The owner of the vehicle has past ties to a group known to fund the IRA.

However, there is another incident being reported in New Smyrna Beach, FL that is even more disturbing as the vehicle was purchased at auction and would appear at this time to be a random targeting. In this instance the explosives did not appear to be able to detonate.

Both incidents are still being investigated.

One can only hope this does not evolve into a trend.

The car bomb in the local 6 story was later found to be a fake.

What was thought to be a bomb attached to the undercarriage of a Hollywood man's car was determined to be a fake, police said Friday.

"It has been ruled a hoax device and Hollywood detectives are now shifting their investigation toward a threat incident," Hollywood police spokesman Capt. Tony Rode said.

Well, that one is a relief. Hopefully the other turns out to be a non-event and no further similar incidents are found.
