Jumbo "suspicious package" an item with a dying battery
The suspicious package found at the Jumbo supermarket in Rosmalen earlier on Friday proved to be a false alarm. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team found an item with a dying battery in the package, according to the police. The item was beeping because of the low battery. https://twitter.com/PolitieOBN/status/632178541048799232 Over 100 tips were reported to the police since announcing that an extortion plot is at the center of multiple bomb threats made against Jumbo. Explosive material has been recovered from the scene of several Jumbo supermarkets over the past few months. The store on the Veemarkt in Zwolle received a birthday card containing an explosive substance. The card played the song "Dans je de hele nacht met mij", or "Dance with me all night" in English, when you open it. A ransom of bitcoins was demanded in exchange for ending the bomb incidents.
