Lee County law enforcers
say the suspicious device they found at the Goodwill Donation Center on Sunday
was a fake, or toy bomb.
A Goodwill worker found the
toy bomb while sorting through donations at the center on Philema Road next to
Mike's Country Store.
She called 911, and the
Lee County Sheriff's office responded, and called in the GBI Bomb Squad from
"These devices were made
several years ago and if people are still in possession of them they need to
dispose of them or contact a law enforcement agency so we can dispose of it. If
anyone tries to sell this type of device, they can be charged, it is against
the law," says Major Keith Houston with the Lee County Sheriff's office.
Major Houston says they
don't believe Goodwill was a target, but they are looking for the person who
dropped off the donation.
They don't know at this
time if any charges will be filed.
