Suspicious Florida Trailer Contains Toilets


ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 19 (UPI) — Police in Florida said they opened a suspicious trailer marked with anti-government messages and a warning to “Open at Your Risk” and discovered two toilets.

Sgt. Vincent Ogburn, Orlando police spokesman, said officers evacuated nearby buildings, including the Orlando Sentinel, and Orange Avenue was shut down for 4 hours Sunday while police attempted to determine the contents of the trailer, the Sentinel reported Monday.

A bomb squad member in protective gear eventually opened the trailer and found two toilets.

“We did not and do not know what this person’s intentions were,” Ogburn said, referring to whoever locked the trailer to a palm tree outside of the newspaper offices.

A sign on a door of the trailer said, “Open at Your Risk.”
