Murfreesboro Police say No Bomb Located in the Area of Thompson Lane at Medical Center Parkway

Reports of a bomb attached to a car outside the First Watch restaurant in Murfreesboro turned out to be a false alarm, according to Murfreesboro Police Public Information Officer Larry Flowers. Flowers said, “A man claiming he attached a rubber bumper, with duct tape and wires to the passenger’s side of his car to prevent dents caused the confusion.” 

There was a massive response from local, state and federal agencies, according to the MPD on Tuesday morning. Medical Center Parkway at Thompson Lane was also closed to through traffic as a result of the scare. Police say that several schools in the Siegel school zone were even placed on lockdown. Of course, that lockdown has now been lifted. Again, there was no bomb located and the MPD has given the “All Clear.”
