Russian Bomb Squad Sex Toy. The Russian bomb squad finds a sex toy in a ticking package that scared postal workers. Post Office officials didn’t know what it was at first because it was making a noise.
The sex toy that stimulated the rapid Russian response had apparently been turned on “by accident,” police in the city of Petrozavodsk told Agence-France Presse.
“The post building was ringed by the security forces and people were evacuated,” a spokeswoman said. “In the package, the bomb squad found a vibrator.” The sex toy had apparently been turned on “by accident.”
Petrozavodsk is located near St. Petersburg.
Russians have been on understandably high alert after January’s deadly suicide bombing at Domodedovo Airport that killed 37 people. In 2010, two suicide bombers killed 40 people in the Moscow metro.
In March 2010, two more suicide bombers killed 40 people when they set off their deadly packages in the Moscow metro.
Chechen warlord Doku Umarov, an Islamist who has been waging a bloody campaign to free his country from Russian rule, is suspected in both bombings.
The package is now expected to be returned to the post office and sent to its addressee.
