Officials: Florida robbery bomb was fake

first_imgOn Tuesday evening, the man was in the drive-through lane of the bank where he works. The device was strapped to him with duct tape, and he seemed convinced that it was a real bomb, Rode said. It wasn’t clear how the robbery occurred. Authorities said the employee passed a “significant amount” of money to two men and a woman he claimed had abducted him at gunpoint from his Dania Beach home and brought him to the Wachovia bank branch in downtown Hollywood. The employee said the alleged kidnappers wore masks, the two men had guns and he could only provide a generic description to investigators, Rode said. The bank employee, whose identity was not released, was not injured. He and his girlfriend were questioned overnight by investigators and released early Wednesday, but it was still unclear whether they had been victims or participants, Rode said. “We have more questions than answers,” he said. “One question is, are they somehow involved? We just don’t know. We’re treating them for now as victims, but that could change.” The Broward County sheriff’s bomb squad used a robot to detonate the suspected bomb after removing it from the man. “It would not have exploded by itself,” Rode said Wednesday. The case was reminiscent of a bank robbery in 2003 in which a pizza delivery driver in Erie, Pa., was found with a bomb attached to a homemade collar around his neck. The pizza delivery man, Brian Wells, told police he had been abducted and forced to rob the bank. State troopers arrested him and called in a bomb squad, but the device exploded, killing Wells, before they could remove it. Federal prosecutors in July said Wells was knowingly involved in the robbery plot, an allegation Wells’ family denies.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Chelsea reports: ‘Van Persie to London, defender considering exit and boost on France forward’

first_imgChelsea could strengthen before the close of the January transfer window.Alexandre Pato continues to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, but could the Blues have a Plan B if this deal collapses?Including major transfer boosts, check out six of the latest rumours on Chelsea by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 5 2. Gary Cahill – Chelsea defender considering exit over Euro 2016 fears? – Since the emergence of Kurt Zouma into the Blues’ first team last season, Cahill has been competing with John Terry for a starting place, and over the past few months the latter has been the preferred option. With the 2016 European Championship finals approaching, the England international is now said to be fearful over his chances of being picked for Roy Hodgson’s squad, and he is consequently considering his future at Stamford Bridge, according to Reuters. It could be too late for him to leave in the current window, but he has reportedly accepted that his career with Chelsea may be coming to an end. 5 5 3. Antoine Griezmann – Diego Simeone worried about losing the Frenchman to Chelsea? – Chelsea were linked with Griezmann, who is contracted to Atletico Madrid until 2020, in the summer, but a bid never materialised. The Frenchman, however, remains on the Blues’ radar and Diego Simeone has openly suggested that the forward could leave the Estadio Vicente Calderon, if the player himself decides it’s time to move on. The Argentine manager said, ‘The sporting directors have speaking to him directly, with those close to him, in order to work out what’s best for him and the club. Of course he’s a very important player for us, but we can’t hold him here with chains’. 5 1. Robin van Persie – Blues to try to lure ex-Arsenal and Manchester United striker to the Bridge? Read all about this rumour below, then click the arrow above to get up to date on four more stories on Chelsea – The Netherlands international swapped Manchester for Turkey in the summer, sealing a £4.7m move to Fenerbahce, but the striker has endured a miserable time thus far with his new club. He has been used sparingly by Vitor Pereira, making just 10 starts in the Super Lig, but despite his limited playing time, the 32-year-old has still bagged seven goals – which has left Chelsea interested. According to the Daily Express, Roman Abramovich could make a move for the former Arsenal captain, offering a similar short-team contract as Alexandre Pato. 4. Mauricio Pochettino – Spurs boss on Roman Abramovich’s managerial wish list? – Chelsea reportedly have five names on their managerial wish list, and Pochettino is the latest to have been added. His sublime work at Tottenham Hotspur this season, which has resulted in the club charging for the Premier League’s top four and introducing a number of homegrown players to the stage, has allegedly made him a top target. Antoine Conte, Jorge Sampaoli, Diego Simeone and Didier Deschamps are the others being monitored by Abramovich. 5 5. Bertrand Traore – Chelsea facing FIFA investigation over academy starlet? – The Blues could be in hot water with the world’s football governing body after it came to light that Traore played for the club’s under-18 side when he was 16 – which is a clear breach of FIFA regulations. Such is the seriousness of the issue, Chelsea could face a transfer ban if they are found guilty of breaking the rules. The defending English champions have dismissed the claims as false, stating that nothing illegal has taken place; though it seems the case is ongoing.last_img read more
