In an all-too-familiar refrain,the Hagerstown (Md.) Herald Mail reports,“A suspicious object destroyed by a Pennsylvania State Police bomb squad Friday night near the former Landis Tool Co. turned out to be something from a hi-tech scavenger hunt,Waynesboro Police Chief Mark King said. ”“The object was a spherical holiday edition soda bottle with a capped piece of plastic pipe inserted down the neck. There was a plastic tie around the bottle neck and a wire loop was used to hang it from the shrub. After it was destroyed,police found a “geocaching” logbook rolled up inside the pipe.”A geocacher,God love him,responds in the comments:“We were one of the ones who tried to find this around 5 p.m. last night when the place was surrounded by police,fire,etc. We thought a house was on fire.”

A Polish driver who was too sure of his GPS road navigation device ended up neck-deep in a lake after ignoring road signs warning of a dead-end ahead,Polish police said overnight. “The man took a road that was closed a year ago…he ignored three road signs warning of a dead-end,”police spokesman in Glubczyce,Piotr Smolen,said. “His GPS told him to drive straight ahead and he did.”The driver had not been under the influence of a GPS,but apparently alcohol.
