A man in Cyprus unwittingly brought a live bomb into a police station Wednesday.

The 33-year-old discovered it while he was pulling his car onto the street, reported Reuters, in the capital Nicosia.

It was mere moments before police realized the man was carrying a bomb.

An evacuation of the building was underway and the bomb squad called in, said Digital Spy.

"He obviously didn't know what it was," a police source told Reuters.

The makeshift bomb was quickly defused.

Early reports did not specify why someone had planted a bomb in the man's driveway.
