Mexican jumping beans create bomb scare

A mailman in Carlsbad, CA was alarmed by a ticking package and reported it to the authorities. Police evacuated several homes in the area and when they opened the box, they discovered it contained Mexican jumping beans.

"It was a little funny and made a serious situation humorous, but it is sad that police had to waste their time on a toy," a neighbor said.

Now is a great time to read the Useful Information sheet given away with box of jumping beans.
