A white tube containing metal nails gave Casper College (Wyoming) police -- and robots -- all they could handle Wednesday, when a bomb scare temporarily evacuated the school. The device, found on the third floor of the student centre, had to be cleared by police and bomb-scanning robots before officials deemed the device non-explosive. Shortly after clearing the device, police dispatch received a call from a student claiming the device could be hers; she had misplaced her school project.
