'Mobile Bomb': Van with 250 gallons of gas found in Miami

A van carrying a 250-gallon drum full of gas was discovered in Miami Tuesday in what police are calling a "mobile bomb" that was waiting to go off.

The van was found in the 1200 block of Southwest 4th Street in the Little Havana neighborhood, Miami Police said.

Police said a neighbor who smelled an odor and saw gas dripping from the back of the van tipped them off. When officers arrived they discovered the drum filled to the brim, officials said.

Officers closed off the block while the fire department also responded to the scene.
