Chemical bomb explodes in couple's mailbox; police call it a "prank".

(WESH) Florida investigators want to know who set off an acid bomb in an Orange County mailbox.

The hazmat team had to be called to the home to deal with the aftermath.

Officials said the homeowners went to check their mail on Tuesday afternoon and saw the contents of the bomb spilling out of the mailbox and called authorities.

Crews found hydrochloric acid and Drano inside a plastic bottle that had already exploded.

"She got down and looked at it," said the homeowner. "I told her, 'Don't touch it,' and the plastic bottle burst and sprayed inside the contents. I found some crystals and as a responsible citizen of this country we thought we should call authorities."
