Philly Theatre's Fake Bomb Produces Real Scare

Philly Theatre's Fake Bomb Produces Real Scare

A theatre troupe in Philly has now learned that they should be careful what they throw away.

According to NY Daily News, Philadelphia police discovered dangerous-looking props from the Applied Mechanics' show in a dumpster and immediately evacuated the area, closing off roads before bringing in a bomb squad and blowing up the fake explosive.

The set from BANDITS, a show inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, was being broken down and thrown away on Friday morning by crew members from Applied Mechanics. The prop that caused alarm was a fake bomb made of a PVC pipe hooked into a circuit board.

The police determined that it was an honest mistake, so the troupe will be facing no charges.
