Police say these scenarios can, and have ended much worse, we are fortunate that this was not a device to harm anyone and everyone involved was able to return home to their families.
Fortunately the package was only a “Geocache” used in a game, similar to a scavenger hunt. The items were in a military ammunition container, placed against the natural gas line entering the Jiffy Burger.
The statement added that this was a terrible choice of container and location for a “Geocache”.
