A man from Cyprus caused a major security scare by unknowingly bringing a bomb to a police station.

The 33-year-old found a strange-looking device on the back window of his car, and decided to take it to the station in Nicosia for an expert opinion today (January 16).

However, police soon realised that the device was a makeshift bomb that had not gone off, leading to a swift evacuation of the station and nearby buildings.

"He obviously didn't know what it was," a police source told Reuters.

Police officials said that the object was a "makeshift high intensity explosive" attached to a detonator and a fuse.

The device was later defused inside the building by explosives experts.

A boy recently discovered a WWII bomb with a metal detector he was given as a birthday present.

An Australian school had to be evacuated in December when a girl brought a grenade to show-and-tell.
