GBI investigates after possible bomb found


The GBI is investigating after a suspicious device that appeared to be a bomb was found at the Goodwill Donation Center on Philema Rd.

Initially the Lee County Sheriff's office responded and said they found five sticks of dynamite taped together that said the word dynamite on the outside with a timer attached.

A goodwill worker found the device while going through donations.

Howeve, no one has confirmed it was an actually bomb.

The GBI bomb squad out of Cairo was called in, and they destroyed the device.

Workers at Mike's Country Store next door were evacuated.
