Police were called after the suspect package was left outside a dairy in Woodville, North Island. The area was cordoned off and nearby houses evacuated while army bomb disposal experts were called to the scene.

Sex Aid Sparks New Zealand Bomb Scare
A suspicious package which sparked a bomb scare and evacuation of a New Zealand mail centre was later identified as a harmless sex aid, a report said Thursday. An airport x-ray machine alerted staff about suspicious wiring in the parcel from China on Tuesday and it was placed in an explosives safe overnight. Emergency services were only notified the next morning when they decided to evacuate the mail centre near Auckland airport. The parcel was later identified as a sex aid, the New Zealand Herald reported.
The incident has prompted a Customs investigation into why emergency services were not immediately contacted, leaving a potential bomb in a safe overnight.

Then I heard the voice on the public address system saying, "We apologise for the inconvenience, but Delta Flight 570 will board from Gate 41." So my family picked up our luggage and carried it over to Gate 41. But not 10 minutes later the public address voice told us that Flight 570 would in fact be boarding from Gate 35. So, again, we gathered our carry-on luggage and returned to the original gate. Just as we were settling down, the public address voice spoke again: "Thank you for participating in Delta's physical fitness program..."
Not Exactly a Bomb, but Certainly a Precarious Position!
Note that there is someone in the pickup truck...
