Tamura Elementary School Reopens After Suspicious Pipe Turns Out Not to be a Bomb
"I have a question, teacher: What are we doing outside?"
Fountain Valley School District
Tamura Elementary School in Fountain Valley was evacuated this morning after a janitor found a Ziploc bag with PVC pipe inside.
The school at 17340 Santa Suzanne St., Fountain Valley, was evacuated just before 7:15 a.m., and the Orange County Sheriff's Department bomb squad was called out to investigate the bag near a bench on a school lawn, where a robotic device was later seen examining the contents.
But an "all-clear" declaration went out at 9:30 a.m., and the school resumed normal operations.
So what was in the bag? An extension for a GoPro camera that skateboarders doing tricks at the school over the weekend had unwittingly left behind.
