UNUSUAL DEVICE AT BAR SPURS A PROBE BY BOMB EXPERTS

Police were called to a bar Wednesday after the manager found a cardboard box containing materials resembling an explosive.

After evacuating employees and patrons at Southern Exposure, 5142 S. State, and neighboring businesses, bomb experts X-rayed the 1-by-2-foot box, according to Murray Police Sgt. Gerry Christensen.No explosives were found.

"It looks like (the materials) were never intented to look like a bomb," said Christensen. "It was some guy's invention, he left it for one of the employees to see."

The invention was apparently some kind of paint sprayer, said Christensen.
