CROSS PLAINS, Tenn. (WKRN) – A box of love letters caused quite the commotion in Robertson County on Friday when the bomb squad was called to investigate a suspicious package.
According to Smokey Barn News, a man found a large box wrapped in Christmas paper in his driveway around 11 a.m. with a note attached. The note said, “Open ASAP.”
Since he was only in town temporarily and was not expecting a package he called 911 to report the package.
The bomb squad used a video-scope to look inside the box. The camera revealed that the box had two plastic bottles with a clear liquid inside them. The director of the Robertson County Emergency Management said the bomb squad did not find any wires or a power source inside the box.
Since there were no wires visible, a member of the bomb squad carefully opened the box and removed the two bottles. After a short time it was confirmed that the liquid inside the 2-liter Dr. Thunder bottles was only water.
There was also a small stuffed animal and two love letters inside the box.
According to Cross Plains Police and Smokey Barn News, the letters were from a woman the man at the home had recently stopped communicating with online. There was no criminal intent with the package and no charges will be filed.
