Polk County Responds to Bomb Scare
The Polk County Sheriff’s Department was involved in a bomb scare, Monday. The department responded to a call of seven suspicious suitcases at the SuperAmerica gas station store on Hwy. 8, and across the street at Wayne’s Cafe.
The suitcases were found to be empty but Polk County Sheriff Tim Moore says it is important to take every precaution.
Sheriff Moore says the Sheriff’s Department worked for about nine hours and received assistance from the Marathon County Bomb.
This is the first scare of its kind in recent memory, according to Moore.
