Homemade GoPro Device Prompts Evacuation at Fountain Valley Elementary School
A suspicious package that prompted an evacuation at a Fountain Valley elementary school Monday was discovered to be a homemade GoPro device and deemed safe by a bomb squad, according to the local police department.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad was called to investigate the package, which at first was described as a plastic pipe with two caps on the ends, police department Sgt. Anthony Luce said.
The device was later discovered to be a homemade GoPro camera extension that has been accidentally left by a student over the weekend, Luce said.
The bomb squad determined the package was not an explosive device and no crime had been committed, the department stated around 9:50 a.m.
The school was released back to school staff and all students were safely released to their parents.
