Novelty alarm clock causes brief panic at north Wichita motel

By Wil Day. CREATED Sep 1, 2014

Wichita Police were called to the report of an explosive device at a north Wichita motel.

It began around 11:30 a.m. Monday when officers were called to the Mark 8 Motel in the 1000 block of N. Broadway.  A maid had discovered what appeared to be some type of bomb inside one of the rooms.

Though the person renting the room confirmed to police that it was just a novelty alarm clock made to look like a bomb, police called out the Explosive Ordinance Disposal team to verify.  Xrays determined that the device was in fact harmless.

Residents who had been evacuated were allowed to return around 1:30 p.m.
