Bomb squad called to Rush Limbaugh's house on Palm Beach, Florida
PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office bomb squad was called to the Palm Beach home of Rush Limbaugh after security found a suspicious package Thursday afternoon.
The conservative talk-show host lives on the northern end of the island.
According to Palm Beach police, Rush Limbaugh’s security found a package containing an electronic plaque. Because it was electronic and had wires, they believed the package was suspicious and contacted authorities.
The package arrived Thursday around 4:30 p.m. and was reportedly sent from Wexford, Pennsylvania. Police were able to contact the sender who then apologized for sending something that could be construed as being dangerous.
Authorities have not determined whether the device will be destroyed.
The Palm Beach Daily News reports Palm Beach police blocked off North Ocean Boulevard and are re-routing northbound traffic onto North Ocean Way.
Limbaugh was reportedly home during the incident. He has not commented on the event.
