Florida man sleeping in car at closed park found with bomb, bomb-making materials in his car

SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. - Officials are investigating a Florida man who allegedly had bomb-making materials in his car.

Police responded to a call about a man asleep in his truck in a Satellite Beach park that was closed, according to a WFTV report.

When police arrived, they asked 30-year-old Long whether he had a gun and Long showed his gun, but that's not all he had.

An officer spotted a pipe bomb in Long's car seat, and later found other bomb making materials in his car.

A bomb squad determined that the bomb found on the car set wouldn't have worked, however officials plan to search the home to see if there are any materials that may be a threat to public safety.
