Calm down everyone, it’s just a trumpet

A suspicious package left outside a fast-food restaurant Wednesday turned out to be a trumpet that has sounded its last note.

Someone noticed a suspicious package, and several blocks were closed down for about two hours as police investigated.

A robot detonated the case — and the fears were resolved.

“Some very alert citizens watched this package for a considerable amount of time and then they called the police thinking it didn’t look right,” Salt Lake City police Detective Gary Trost said.

“Gratefully enough, it was just a trumpet.”
