St. Mary Parish Bomb Threat Turned Out to Be an Egg
A bomb scare in St. Mary Parish turned out to be nothing more than an egg.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's office was called to a residence on Barrow Street in Amelia over the weekend about an "unknown object".
According to the release by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office, someone called 911 to complain about an unknown object that was placed under their home.
The call came in on Saturday, just after 11 in the morning. St. Martin Parish Sheriff's deputies were assisted by the Amelia Volunteer Fire Department.
Authorities were told that the homeowner had received death threats and a video of something wrapped in a bandana that had been hidden under the homeowner's house.
Investigators investigating the incident were able to locate the device that had been left under the home under the front porch.
Anytime a suspicious device is found, actions are taken to protect the public from what could possibly be an explosive device - so nearby residents were evacuated to a safe area.
Police also closed off a portion of the street in the name of public safety.
