Bun runner’s wild bolt triggers airport security chase

Mystery surrounds details of the incident, in which security staff at Landvetter Airport in the city of Gothenburg apprehended the man just after he ran through the security checkpoint. EGT_Artical Banner A 250x250

The man was apprehended and the bomb squad called when steel wires were spotted in his bag. Officers removed the bag to a remote spot outdoors so any explosion would do as little damage as possible.

When bomb technicians peeked inside the bag about three hours later, to work out  whether they needed to conduct a controlled explosion, they did not find a bomb or any explosives. While the bag contained steel wires, its only other significant contents were buns and confectionery.

Police would not disclose whether the buns were of the traditional Swedish cinnamon type or some kind of foreign patisserie.

“The bag contained, among other things, buns, candy and steel wires,” was all police would tell the local Göteborgs-Posten (GP) newspaper.

The man is likely to be charged with trying to evade a security check, though why he did so is unknown.

The incident was one of a spate of bizarre happenings to bemuse Swedes last week. A woman in her sixties was charged with beating her male consort around the head with a mackerel and a pastor delivered a sermon while dressed as an elk. As well as that, fish-factory workers in western Sweden discovered a perfectly shaped cross on a Norwegian salmon’s belly. They have nicknamed their find the Jesus fish and plan to take it on tour to show the rest of Sweden.

“It seems that the Jesus fish has been brought back to life and will begin touring,” delighted fish factory worker Lars Ludwigson told The Local, which presents Sweden’s news in English.

Perhaps the fish will reveal the secret behind the bun runner’s sprint.
