Not so for three addresses in the Ohio townships of Gratis and Somers—as property owners found explosives on Saturday where envelopes typically go.

According to a Facebook post by the Preble County Sheriff's Office, "The explosives that were located were a mixture of chemicals in 2-liter pop bottles."

The bottles were eventually cleared for safety and sent off for forensic testing.
