Last week a burglary investigation at a Public Storage facility in Arlington, Fla., led to the discovery of “suspicious” items that incited the arrival of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad.
The self-storage facility reported the break-in of several units on Friday afternoon. Upon investigating, police found questionable items in one of the compromised units. The items belonged to a renter and were not related to the burglary.
The bomb squad detonated the items that day and determined they were not a threat, though a real estate office near the scene was briefly evacuated. No injuries or arrests were reported.
