On the morning of March 27th two men entered a UPS Store in Hendersonville. Both looked drastically different: one seemed to be a friendly middle-school-teacher type in glasses and neat clothes. The other was hiding a bearded face under a parka hood.

Whilst the first one was chatting with staff, the hooded man quickly placed down an unmarked package. He then activated it, causing an explosion.

Both men quickly left. The exploded package left a small cloud of white powder, that prompted the store employees to rapidly evacuate.

Luckily, the Hazardous Materials Team that responded to the emergency call, determined the substance as non-life-threatening. It turned out to be a makeshift device created from a pepper-ball spray. No one in the building was harmed.

Law enforcement soon identified both men. So far only one of them, 38-year-old Christopher Murray has been charged with felony perpetrating a hoax, reports Wyff4.

The investigation continues.

Timothy is the Senior Editor for America Tonight with more than 20 years in media. Curiously enough, he started off within agricultural journalism (he's from Georgia, after all), but soon moved from articles about peaches to something more intense. He attended the University of Central Florida, receiving a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences and minoring in Crime, Law, and Deviance. At first he took a job as a traffic reporter (mostly to conquer his fear of heights, he claims), but after a month of relatively peaceful work was asked to cover a live police car chase. This was a game-changer: by the end of the same year he was leading the newsroom. Tim also loves to promise that he's quitting "next year", moving from New York to New Zealand and becoming a writer, but we don't believe him. He loves us too much.
