PASCAGOULA, Mississippi — It’s kind of like a gut bomb.
A man triggered a panic at a Mississippi bank when he walked in carrying a garbage bag he said contained a bomb, but that was only filled with gumbo and jars of pasta sauce, police said.
David Harold Hudson, 61, had walked into the Hancock Bank in Pascagoula Wednesday and began harassing customers, police said, according to GulfLive.com.
Bank officials asked him to leave, but he returned a few hours later carrying the bag, which he left on floor of the bank’s lobby and told a bank manager he had a bomb nad would blow the bank up, cops said.
He then left, but the bag triggered off an evacuation of the bank and a visit by the bomb squad.
It was later discovered that the bag only held the soup and the spaghetti sauce.
Hudson was arrested at his home a few hours later.
