LONGVIEW — A bomb scare was quickly handled by a bomb squad from Barksdale Air Force Base. They were called in to look at suspicious device found in a Longview newspaper stand. According to KETK, officials say the “bomb” is actually the coin collection device from the newspaper stand itself. Somehow, the coin collector fell off inside the newsstand. It was discovered by an IHOP patron around 7:00 yesterday morning, and officials were immediately alerted.
