Fired Worker Places Hoax Bomb Under Ex-Boss’ SUV in Russia

IVANOVO, October 15 (RIA Novosti) – Police in central Russia have detained a man suspected of taking revenge on his former employer by placing a fake bomb under his SUV, the Interior Ministry said Monday.

The employer’s daughter spotted the device, fashioned to resemble an explosive, under her father’s Nissan X-Trail while she was walking her dog, police in the western Ivanovo Region said.

The woman called the police after seeing wires under the car.

Bomb disposal experts found two pieces of laundry soap made to look like TNT, a mobile phone and a battery with wires coming out it.

Police identified the suspected perpetrator as a man recently dismissed by the owner of the SUV for poor performance on the job.

The man could face up to two years in prison.
