Two Halls face Bomb Threats

Two bingo halls have had to deal with separate bomb threats on the same day this month.

Bingo players in two bingo halls in America had a stressful time of it on Friday 12th November. Firstly Lee County Bomb Squad had to investigate after a suspicious package was found at Pondella Bingo Hall in North Fort Myers, after a thorough and extensive investigation, they concluded it was just a box of fuses.

Then, just four minutes later, another bomb alert was sounded at South 41 Bingo on Cleveland Avenue. The building was evacuated and comprehensively searched and another unattended box was found, and although the road was closed off for safety, it turned out to be filled with fuses as well. The road reopened soon after.

The bingo players were soon back playing their favourite games, and had something to gossip about while waiting for those full houses!
