Bridgeport Man Causes Bomb Scare Outside NJ Police Station

While no bombs were found in the search, the man was cited for weapons charges.

Drivers should use caution when parking. Drivers should use more caution when parking outside of a police station. Drivers should maybe exercise the most caution when parking outside a police station to pay off tickets.

Antonio Salguero, 39, of Bridgeport, found this out the hard way on Tuesday night when he parked his 2005 Ford Crown Victoria outside of the Somerdale Police Station in New Jersey, according to CBS Local. Police noticed the vehicle parked in the yellow-painted-curb zone and found it "suspicious." 

A subsequent search warrant and bomb-squad, complete with bomb-sniffing dogs, recovered no explosive materias, but did end with Salguero being charged with "numerous offenses, including weapons possession and possession of destructive devices," said the CBS report.

Know what the weapons were? Tear gas, road flares, and a baton which are all perfectly legal in PA where he came from, they were locked in a box in his trunk. His bumper was in the yellow part of the curb because there were no parking spaces left in the lot. His bail was $35,000 with no ten percent. It cost us a non refundable $3,600 to get him out of Camden County Jail. He faces 10 serious criminal charges for this, plus the bomb squad robot destroyed his trunk to get in. ILLEGAL PARKING IS NOT REASONABLE CAUSE FOR A SEARCH.

Totally Outrageous! His 'Crime' was Non-Compliance when they asked, without any justification, to search his car. And who was the Judge who issued the Search Warrant?

Since when is a parking violation cause for a vehicle search?

Since when you ask ? Since the government namely Barry Sotero has been stripping us of our Constitutional Rights. Welcome to the future Socialist States of Amerikah.

The article says "three incendiary devices". Where is it recorded that they were road flares? I always keep one in my trunk. Do I have something else to fret about when I have to travel to the People's Republic of New Jersey?
