PA Man Charged After Somerdale Bomb Scare

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

Drivers should use caution when parking. Drivers should use even 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.

Fernando Antonio Salguero, 39, of Bridgeport, PA, found this out the hard way on Tuesday night when he parked his 2005 Ford Crown Victoria outside of the Somerdale Police Station, according to 6ABC.com. Police noticed the vehicle parked in the yellow-painted-curb zone and found it "suspicious." 

A Camden County Sheriff's Department bomb-sniffing dog indicated the "presence or previous presence of explosive materials in the vehicle," according to a press release issued Wednesday by Somerdale Police Deputy Chief James Walsh, and a search warrant for the vehicle was issued.

While no explosives were found inside the vehicle during the subsequent search, numerous weapons were discovered inside the car, according to the 6ABC.com report.

Salguero has been charged with numerous offenses, including weapons possession and possession of destructive devices. He was lodged in Camden County Jail on $32,500 bail.

I don't think I want this guy to have weapons.

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.

12 years ago the argument could have been that it was just fertilizer and gasoline. We live in a different world. Kudos to observant public servants.

Why not. Everyone should have guns to make the NRA happy. The more the merrier. People should all have assault rifles too. Why? I don't know, just to sell more guns I guess.

Wasn't he arrested last month on weapons charges, too? I recall that from the Inquirer's article. What weapons did he have that time?
