Authorities in Terra Ceia, Florida, say a man discovered a PVC pipe in his backyard that turned out to be an explosive, a finding made only after he cut it open with a chainsaw.
Marcus Campion reportedly contacted the Manatee Sheriff’s Office after finding the PVC pipe and cutting it open to reveal a brown powder. Deputies arrived and determined it to be an actual explosive.
The device was detonated at the scene, causing a small boom around the area. Deputies say they believe it was left there accidentally many years ago while a channel was dug through the area.
