Bomb Suspect Arrested

A Florida man accused of planting fake bombs in Panama City was arraigned yesterday near Tampa.

41-year-old David Vice was arrested over the weekend.

He’s also suspected of putting envelopes containing a harmless white powder in mailboxes in the St. Petersburg area.

Vice was charged with manufacturing, delivering, or possessing a hoax weapon of mass destruction.

People were evacuated and traffic was disrupted for several hours Saturday while a bomb squad disposed of some fake explosives at a Panama City motel.
