Oklahoma City bomb squad called to investigate suspicious device
The Oklahoma City bomb squad was called out Wednesday morning to investigate a suspicious device after two suspects in a bank robbery told authorities they had explosives in their car, according to KOCO.com.
The station reports that the incident began Wednesday when a man walked into the Bank of the West at 5757 Northwest Expressway and asked to speak to someone about a loan.
The man then showed an employee a device inside a bag that appeared to be a bomb, KOCO reports.
