If you’re working security at any building that houses IRS employees, your tendency to be extra cautious is warranted. For example, if you’re X-Raying a suspicious package that just so happens to contain a curiously shaped object that may resemble an explosive device, you may just order the entire evacuation of the building.
Fortunately, it sounds like it was just a fancy-schmancy decorative egg. While it’s comforting that security forces at the Peachtree Summit Federal Building are a vigilant (maybe too vigilant) bunch, anyone brave enough to bring any sensual devices to work might make for some awkward convos.
This apparently happened late yesterday but jesus, who the hell is the jokester in Utah?
So it turned out to be personal items. That could be anything and it sounds a little silly to blow the package up to find out that it’s filled with undies and socks (although we understand the paranoia).
This is the second false alarm for an IRS facility in Utah in less than two weeks. Last Monday Hazmat crews and the FBI showed up at the Ogden facility after someone found some baking powder and people started having seizures.
Whoever is behind these false alarms is probably having a good laugh about the whole thing. It could be the ghost of Joseph Stack for all we know. Then again, his Facebook group keeps growing so perhaps that’s a good place to start.
