Bomb Scare Shuts Down Busy Lexington Road

A suspicious device brought police to a Lexington bank and closed a busy street in Hamburg for nearly three hours.

A man walking outside the BB&T on Sir Barton Way called police this morning around nine to report the device in the bank's drive through.

The bomb squad closed off the road and brought in a robot, but didn't end up blowing up the device.

It turned out to be harmless, part of a neon light testing kit.
