The former mayor of Denbigh, John Larsen, had been reporting the explosions, which he caused himself, to the police.
He claimed he found a device planted in an advertising board, and told the shop owners.
Helen Richards, a worker at the shop in Denbigh, said it was "strange", as they had not even noticed, so they told the police to check on Larsen.
