Bizarre Bomb Scare Handled Cautiously in Magnolia Springs

MAGNOLIA SPRINGS, AL (WKRG) — A bomb scare in the form of two antifreeze jugs found in Magnolia Springs was handled by the Mobile Bomb Squad on Monday.

It didn’t take long for the bomb squad to determine the antifreeze jugs were not bombs, News 5 is told.

Sources tell News 5’s Debbie Williams that at least two antifreeze jugs with wires coming from them were discovered behind the pharmacy in Magnolia Springs at the intersection of County Road 49 and US Hwy 98.

Mobile’s bomb squad was called in to investigate, but within 15 to 20 minutes, they determined the jugs were not bombs.   ATF has been called because the objects don’t have to be real to pursue charges.

News 5 cameras spotted one of the bomb investigators walking towards the area in full bomb gear.

More tonight on News 5.
