Last year at Pascha, a scare came about after some calls to the police, over objects on a roof in Tarpon Springs, Florida. These items turned out to be 'Pascha bombs,'
fireworks-like devices. Services at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral and other area churches proceeded as normal, but the nuisance of the explosives may be seen in the area again.
From the article:
Even so, the ear blast is never enough for the most competitive bombmakers. Cpl. Scott Brockew, a Tarpon Springs police detective and Pinellas County's only bomb technician, once confiscated a homemade explosive about the size of a watermelon.
