LDS Stake Center Victim of Bomb Hoax
SANDY, UTAH -- An LDS Stake Center in Sandy, Utah was the target of a bomb
hoax on Tuesday, leading local police to call in the bomb squad and angest
of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Someone left the
purported bomb at the door of the stake center, along with a note claiming
that it was a bomb.
Investigators moved the package out to a parking lot and blasted it open
with a water hose. However, the package only contained batteries. Officials
are seeking suspects in the case.
