Police in the northwest Russian republic of Karelia, who arrived at a local post office on Monday to check a report of a suspicious parcel, found a vibrator instead of a bomb.
The staff of the central post office in Petrozavodsk, the capital of Karelia, panicked when hearing a sound resembling a ticking clock and called the police.
The post office was evacuated and cordoned off by police. Bomb experts opened the parcel and found a sex toy inside.
"It [the vibrator] turned on accidently and started vibrating," a police spokesman said.
He added that the toy will be returned to the post office and sent to its addressee.
