Suspected bomb an anal vibrator

April 20, 2010 at 5:34 PM

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif., April 20 (UPI) -- The California Highway Patrol said one of its offices was evacuated due to a suspected bomb in a man's anal cavity that turned out to be a vibrator.

Investigators said a 60-year-old man stopped in a "No Parking" zone near Luther Pass was arrested at about 4:30 a.m. April 7 when an officer found him to be in possession of a substance suspected to be methamphetamine, the Tahoe (Calif.) Daily Tribune reported Tuesday.

Officers at the South Lake Tahoe area office discovered "a suspicious wire, with an on/off switch" in the suspect's front left pocket leading to his anal cavity.

The police report said "the subject began to explain his knowledge of explosives and bomb-making," making officers suspicious of the device.

An El Dorado County Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team evacuated the office at about 5:45 a.m. and rendered the device safe -- determining it was not an explosive device, the report said.

"The vibrator was subsequently removed and placed into property," it said.

The suspect was taken to the El Dorado County Jail in South Lake Tahoe on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance.

The office was reopened by 9:20 a.m.
