Bomb Squad Takes No Chances, Blows Up iPad
If you were worried that your local bomb squad wasn't on top of things, fret not -- a team of explosives experts in Riverside County is so ready to act that they blew up a suspicious-looking briefcase over the weekend containing an iPad and belonging to one unlucky musician.
The tablet was left outside a Starbucks in Murietta, reports the Press-Enterprise. Along with it was an amplifier and a mix machine which, unfortunately, is comprised of wires and circuit boards.
Starbucks employees found the case on Sunday when they went to work at their ungodly start time of 5:20 a.m., and called police. Police then called in the bomb squad, who x-rayed the case and then decided to blow it sky high with a water cannon.
The mix board isn't completely destroyed, but the iPad, reports the Enterprise, is "toast."
