Marlene and I had the assignment to clean up the Chapel. Saturday morning at 8:00 AM we were busy engaged preparing the building for Sunday, sweeping, vacuuming, taking out the garbage ect. When We left the building we found that there was a Fire engine and Ambulance parked in the Church parking lot. I thought that is a odd place to stop to eat some donuts. We got in to the car to drive home and discovered that the street between us and home was barricaded of by two Police Cars. We drove around the block to and found that all of the streets in to the area were Blocked off and there was an another Ambulance parked on the other end of the street. It got really scary as we were driving by and saw officer get out of his car with a assault gun on his shoulder.
We found out that a there was a man in the area who had a "Bomb" and there was a stand off going on. The local Swat Team was there to handle the situation. The Man was arrested and then the bomb squad moved in to take care of the situation. All was calm in by the afternoon but it was really spooky to have eight plus Police cars, a Fire Engine and two ambulances in the neighborhood.
We still don't know the full story. The local newspaper reported that a war veteran was despondent and was trying to kill himself. The rumor in the neighborhood is that he was building a bomb to kill a former wife. There is a woman in the ward that was somewhat involved in that she was in the process of moving from the house in question and the people involved had moved into her home and were using it without her knowledge.
