Police: hearse in bomb scare had fake weapons
Miami Gardens Police: hearse in bomb scare had fake weapons; 'person of interest' in custody
By The Associated Press

MIAMI GARDENS (AP) ' Miami Gardens police say the hearse in the bomb scare that snarled traffic for hours had fake weapons inside.

Police chief Matthew Boyd told the Miami Herald Saturday that the abandoned hearse was filled with a fake arsenal of automatic weapons, ammunition and rocket launcher. Boyd said "they were good replicas."

One item, also possibly fake, was turned over to federal authorities. No explosives were found.

Jail records show 28-year-old Lee E. Lewis is being held on $15,000 bond. Police wanted to question him in connection with Friday's bomb scare when officers reported seeing firearms and other weapons inside the hearse, calling in the bomb squad.

A police flyer said Lewis was wanted on weapons violations. He served time for grand theft auto and drug charges.
