After Muslim terrorist dumpster bombings in New York and New Jersey last weekend, it’s no wonder that panic ensued when a suspicious box of cookies with Arabic writing on it was found at a gas pump at the Marshalls Creek Gulf station.
The Pocono Record reports that someone left a cookie box with Arabic writing on the outside at a gas pump at the Gulf filling station in Marshalls Creek, Penn. After a customer noticed the box, they immediately called the police, who came out to investigate the box as a potential explosive device.
Police immediately had employees evacuate the gas station, and a hazardous Devices and Explosives Unit van was brought on the scene, along with at least three state police cars.
It turned out, however, that the potential bomb really was just a box of cookies. The Gulf station opened up shortly after officers determined that the box of treats was not a threat to human life.
