Bomb squad called out to "suspicious device", turns out to be flour

AXTELL - The McLennan County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad was called out to inspect a "suspicious device" in the mailbox of an Axtell area home, which turned out to be a package of flour.

The McLennan County Sheriff's Office got a call from a resident on Old Mexia Rd., near Axtell, shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

A woman opened her mailbox and noticed a suspicious package there and was fearful that it was some kind of device that might hurt her, possibly connected with someone with whom she was having a disagreement.

The bomb squad was sent and care was taken in removing the package. It was x-rayed and it was later determined that it was a package of flour.
