A bomb squad and robot were called out to an Orem home after a suspicious package was found on the doorstep Sunday afternoon.
At around 5 p.m., the homeowner found an unlabeled package on his doorstep, located near 729 South and 300 West in Orem.
“The family got a knock at the door. They answered the door and on the porch was a gift wrapped package. They open it,” said Sgt. Craig Martinez, Orem Department of Public Safety. “It was kinda of a small jewelry-type box. It has some wires coming out of it, so they thought that was a little bit suspicious, so they called [police].”
The bomb squad from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office was called out to look at the package. The squad x-rayed the package and was concerned by its appearance, so a robot was sent out to collect the box, put it in a secure container and take it to their disposal facility.
It is still unclear exactly what was in the package.
