Bomb squad get an unusual call

DENVER (AP) - December 2, 2010

And the toy robot lost.

The Denver bomb squad was sent to investigate after the toy was found cemented to a downtown footbridge.

Police spokesman Matt Murray tells The Denver Post the bomb squad doesn't automatically respond to all suspicious objects.

But he says the robot was strange enough to warrant a call.

After about two hours of surveillance by the bomb-squad robot, police destroyed the toy robot with a small amount of explosive.

The police spokesman says the incident turned out to be "a whole lot of nothing."
