In The News: The ‘Bomb’ Scare



A 30-year-old man with a backpack filled with sex toys and lubricants caused a bomb scare at an Aurora Wal-Mart Wednesday.

The bomb squad was called to the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 3301 N. Tower Road around 6:15 p.m. after a man wearing a backpack acted suspicious when the woman he was with was caught shoplifting, said Cassidee Carlson, Aurora police spokeswoman.

“Police contacted him in the parking lot after security looked in the backpack and saw some liquids and piping,” she said.

Something in the backpack got a “hit” from a bomb-sniffing dog, so the bomb squad was called in, she said.

“There was no bomb, only sex toys,” she said. “The man had active warrants, so he was arrested, anyway.”

The woman the suspect was with was issued a summons for shoplifting and released, police said.

    You mean, Wal-mart actually did something about a theft and, all it took was a bomb hoax? Well, smear me with honey and, let the bears loose!
