Treasure hunt for girlfriend prompts bomb scare

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A Utah bomb squad thought a package marked "Army" was suspicious, but it was just part of an elaborate plan by a guy trying to ask a girl to a dance.

St. George police rushed to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple on Saturday after the package was placed near a gazebo.

Surrounding streets were closed as a precaution.

The investigation ended, however, when officers were told the package was part of a treasure hunt, and contained candy and a note asking a girl to a dance.
