Best Buy goes all "Hurt Locker" over empty briefcase
Not the scene at Best Buy in Eagan on Saturday
There was the little robotic crawler, poking around the suspect package with its Erecter Set arms.
There was the guy in the monster green suit, walking towards the target.
There was KARE to record "The Hurt Locker" at Best Buy in Eagan, as shoppers were kept on lockdown in the store for two hours.
Cut, to the empty briefcase under the car.
The Bloomington Police bomb squad was called to the store Saturday after someone reported a suspicious package -- the empty briefcase -- under a car in the parking lot.
No one knows how it got there; it didn't belong to the car's owner, and there were no security cameras in the parking lot.
