(Detroit Free Press) - Police say a woman placed a cloth bag on the counter of the Fifth Third Bank on Harper Road in Clinton Township on Saturday and demanded money from the teller, saying there was a bomb inside the bag.
"It did look like there was a hard object in there," Clinton Township Lt. Eric Reincke said. "But it was folded over so you couldn't see what was inside."
But what bank workers thought was a bomb was actually cans of spaghetti sauce.
The woman received money and left the bank in the 34500 block of Harper Road, and then a bomb squad scanned the bag, he said.
"It turned out that it was a couple of cans of spaghetti sauce," Reincke said. "If you don't know what's in a package ... you have to treat it like it is possibly an explosive device."
The woman, who police said was about 60 years old, left in a silver, older-style boxy car driven by a man, police said.
Nobody was injured and it was not clear how much money was taken.
"We're still developing suspect information," Reincke said Sunday. "But we do think we have a pretty good lead on a suspect."
Anybody with information is asked to call police at at 586-493-7857.
