Bomb squad responds to school, determines: 'It was pillows' Published: February 8, 2014

A pile of pillows prompted a school lockdown in Miramar, Fla. Tuesday morning after reports that a woman left "suspicious items" by Somerset Preparatory Charter Middle School, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"It was pillows," Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said simply.

That determination took more than two hours to be made. Students waited at the rear of the school, and nearby streets were shut down while a bomb squad assessed the potential threat.
