'Suspicious' package turns out to be donation for Seminole County church

The note on the 40-pound bundle said, simply, "For Pastor Nick."

Here's how suspicious we've become in the post- 9/11 world.

A cardboard box left at a church near Lake Mary caused the closure of Markham Woods Road while a bomb squad X-rayed it and then blew it up.

The note on the 40-pound bundle said, simply, "For Pastor Nick." In the old days, someone would have taken it inside and opened it.

But a church member who found the package on the doorstep about 11 a.m. today thought the corrugated box secured with duct tape might be dangerous.

He drove it from Master's Touch International Church, 555 Markham Woods Road, to a nearby fire station to have it checked out.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office bomb squad couldn't figure out what was inside even after the box was X-rayed.

So, deputies blew it up.

"It didn't look normal," sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday sai
