Fast so absurd, wie ein versuchtes Attentat mit Wurst: Ein verlassenes Paket, das Bombenalarm auslöst, in dem sich dann allerdings nur unter anderem Kermit der Frosch befindet.
An employee of the school called police at about 7:15 a.m. after discovering the suspicious package in Peak to Peak's otherwise-empty parking lot, according to Lafayette police Cmdr. Mark Battersby.
Police secured a perimeter around the school, and students and staff members who had already arrived at Peak to Peak were locked down in a building on the east side of the campus while investigators checked the duffel.
Using a robot equipped with movable arms and a camera, members of Boulder County's bomb squad were able to examine the items that were inside the duffel bag-- including the Kermit the Frog doll -- at a safe distance. An officer then made a final inspection of the abandoned items in person to make sure everything was "absolutely safe," Battersby said.
