Bomb squad blows up suspicious items

Arnold Virgilio, right, of the Citrus County Sheriff's Office bomb squad, helped destroy two suspicious objects Friday morning for Inverness Police. Authorities say the objects appeared to be explosives, and they were each about 5 inches long and 1{ inches in diameter. An Inverness pawn shop owner brought the objects in a plastic bag to the police at about 8 a.m., saying they were found in an electric guitar case at the shop about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Below, the bomb squad detonated a controlled explosive to destroy the objects outside the Inverness police station about 9:30 a.m. Citrus County Fire Rescue and medics also responded to the station before the explosion.
