The Associated Press

CENTERVILLE, Utah — A piece of string cheese made to look like a bomb forced the temporary closure of a Centerville grocery store. Police were called to Dick's Market over the weekend for a report that a someone had left a device covered in duct tape near a dry ice cooler.

The store remained closed for two hours while bomb-sniffing dogs and a bomb technician investigated.

They eventually found the device was a piece of cheese.

Centerville police Lt. Paul Child said juveniles are suspected of planting the item in the store.
