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.

Yesterday, a bomb squad detonated a suspicious object found washed up on Key Biscayne beach.

Earlier this morning Miami International Airport was partially evacuated after a hand grande-shaped cigarette lighter was found.

A pressure cooker was found near Southwest 29th Avenue and 25th Terrace this morning, but after investigating, authorities determined it has merely been put out to be collected by the trashman.

A bag with the word "911" on it was found outside 911 W. Flagler Street. It was determined harmless after being detonated.
