Because nobody would ever attach bombs to balloons in the hope of causing minor damage. Balloon bombs.

That said, yea of course it wasn't a bomb.

The stupidity is rampant in those two. Sending up a camera with no contact info and no tracking system?

FTFA: "He got looking and there's a camera and there was this camera attached to it," she explained. "We took it up to the porch and I wanted to look for a name and he goes don't, don't it might be a bomb, I laughed and said, 'it ain't a bomb.'"

Holy shiat, someone who isn't a paranoid lunatice!

Reporting lost/found property to the county sheriff is the appropriate way to get it back to its owner. That's who the loser of the property would be contacting if they had any sense.

Headline fails for its intimidating tone - nobody's in trouble, they just have something that someone has misplaced and they want to return it.

"Amusing" tag makes it less intimidating... if it had "scary" tag, then you'd have more of a point.

Hello, Chicago Police Department? Yeah, this is the sherriff down in La Porte County Indiana. We found a balloon with a camera attached to it that was launched from a school on your south side. Do you think you could send a couple'a guys over to that neighborhood to ask around, maybe help us find these folks so we can... uhhh... return it to them, I guess?

CPD:...........yeah... we'll get right on that

After watching the entire news story I'm still stumped as to why there is an entire news story about this.
