Bomb Squad Investigates Package
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- The bomb squad was called in to investigate a suspicious package found Wednesday evening outside the FedEx store, near Best Buy in Cedar Rapids. Both stores were evacuated as a precaution.
The all-clear was given when it turned out the package was actually a clock. A customer was shipping the clock at the FedEx store, but did not remove the batteries. When workers heard the ticking, they called police, worried it could be dangerous.
This is the second time in a week the bomb squad was called to investigate a suspicious object. Last Thursday, they deemed safe an object found near the front door of the Kohl's store on Collins Rd.
