A bomb alert in St. Mary Parish turned out to be nothing more than an egg.
The St Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office was called to a flat on Barrow Street in Amelia over the weekend over an “unknown object”.
According to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office releasesomeone called 911 to complain about an unknown object that was placed under their home.
The call came just after 11 a.m. on Saturday. The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s deputies were assisted by the Amelia Volunteer Fire Department.
Authorities were told the homeowner had received death threats and video of something wrapped in a bandana hidden under the homeowner’s home.
Investigators investigating the incident were able to locate the device that had been left under the house under the porch.
Any time a suspicious device is found, steps are taken to protect the public from a potentially explosive device – so nearby residents have been evacuated to a safe area.
In addition, in the name of public safety, the police closed part of the street.
The “all clear” was given after the Louisiana State Police Hazmat/Bomb Division realized the “device” was nothing more than a chicken egg wrapped in a bandana.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office didn’t mention any arrests or if there was even a suspect in the case, but they said the investigation is continuing.
If you have any information regarding this case, please contact the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.
