Reported bomb was bag with beer cans

What was originally believed Wednesday to be a bomb found at a construction site in Auburn was nothing more than a paper bag containing empty beer cans, according to the FBI.

The mysterious package was first reported to Auburn police at 8 a.m. Officers cordoned off the area around the intersection of Maidu Drive and Auburn-Folsom Road, south of Interstate 80.
