Suspicious package turns out to be chess set

Police in Mandeville, LA spent Saturday afternoon investigating a suspicious package found at the front door a former IRS employee. Police blocked roads & evacuated nearby homes. An x-ray of the box revealed what appeared to be all the elements needed for a pipe bomb. They used a robot to blast the box with a water cannon. Once investigators could get a close look at the box, they found out it was a chess set.
