Eunice police say the device found this morning near the site of a bank robbery was not a bomb.
Chief Ronald Dies says a Louisiana State Police bomb squad took the device to a remote location and detonated it. Dies said the object had several wires poking out of it to simulate the look of a bomb.
The suspect in the robbery has not yet been identified. Police say a Hispanic man wearing a blue bandana over his face robbed the Basile State Bank branch at the corner of West Maple Avenue and College Drive around 10 A. M. If you have any information about this crime, call the Eunice Police Department at 337-457-2626.
