The bomb found at a Detroit federal building last week had actually been there for three weeks, according to ABC News. “A contract guard apparently saw this package outside on Feb. 26th,” said David Wright, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 918, which represents employees of the Federal Protective Service. “Against all security protocols — an unattended package should be treated with extreme caution — he picked up that package and took it inside basically on the premise of ‘lost and found’ property. And apparently stored it. That was on Feb. 26. On March 18th, last Friday, someone got the idea to x-ray the package. At that point wires were seen… and it turned out to be a bomb.”
