Suspicious Object in Gasolinera

The gasolinera in La Herradura was cordoned off yesterday afternoon when a suspcious object was found on the premises around 15.45h.

LHR Gasolinera Suspcious Object AG22Both the Policía Local and the Guardia Civil arrived to close the gasolinera whilst the object was examined.

A moped/scooter rider pulled into the forecourt to fill his bike up. After he had paid he left immediately and left a suspcious package behind. The package contained bottles with wires attached and a “strange lump of something.”

The Guardia Civil bomb disposal experts (TEDAX) arrived to ascertain whether it was some form of explosive device. It turns out that it was a hoax bomb; something made to look like one.

The Mayor, Ruiz Joya, explained yesterday evening, “the package was a fake bomb and that traffic is being restored on the N-340.”

In the meantime the Guardia Civil closed the mainroad to traffic as well as attempting to track down the moped rider – as after examining CCTV footage the vehicle was identified.

    A pretty dim criminal as surely it’s common knowledge that fuel stations have CCTV
