Suspected Bomb Addressed to President Obama Found in Sweetwater
Miami-Dade county is currently experiencing at least its fifth bomb square this week as police are investigating a suspected bomb found in Sweetwater. In an added odd twist, the bomb was apparently addressed to President Obama, among others.
According to NBC Miami, the suspected bomb was found this afternoon in front of a building at 11698 NW 21st Street. The address is home to a freight and shipping company.
No other information was currently available.
This is just the latest bomb scare in Miami this week.
