A US man has been charged after police said he left a toilet made to look like a bomb outside a county office building.
Duane Davis Sr was charged late with placing an imitation destructive device outside the old Baltimore County courthouse in Maryland.
Police said a mobile phone, an electronic device and a note signed by Davis, 51, were attached to the toilet, and it was decorated with newspaper clippings and photos.
A police spokesman said the county bomb squad investigated and the toilet proved harmless.
Davis is being held, with bail set at 200,000 US dollars (£124,400).
He is also charged with making a false statement on Facebook about leaving destructive devices outside the building.
