Russian bomb squad experts got an unexpected chuckle Monday when an investigation of a suspiciously ticking package revealed a vibrator.
As the AFP is reporting, the incident took place at a post office in Petrozavodsk in the republic of Karelia in Russia's northwest. Police officials responded to a call from a postal worker who had identified a suspect parcel which was emitting ticking clock-like sounds.
"The building was ringed by the security forces and people were evacuated," a spokeswoman said. "In the package, the bomb squad found a vibrator." The sex toy had apparently been turned on "by accident."
The package is now expected to be returned to the post office and sent to its addressee.
