Homemade bombs and threatening notes found in Fla.

From the ERRI/EmergencyNet News Global Watchdesk
Notes threatening that Kissimmee, FL., would be bombed by al-Qaeda recently found scattered through the city led to the discovery of homemade bombs inside a 20-year-old's home, police told Local 6 News.

"The exact message on one of the notes, we are told, (is) 'The city of Kissimmee is going to be bombed by al Qaeda, God willing,'" Local 6's Jamie Guriola said.

Some of the notes were found on vehicles parked at the Moose Lodge located on 1019 North Main Street and a vehicle parked at the First Christian Church located at 415 North Main Street.

"Each note referenced al Qaeda," the police report said.

During an investigation, investigators found explosives at the home of Juan Rafael Diaz, along with other notes threatening to detonate the devices, Local 6 reported.
