Bomb scare traced to youth at church A prank by some of the youth at First Baptist Church last December resulted in a bomb scare at the church Friday morning, officials said Monday. A package found in a little-used stairwell at the church prompted the partial evacuation of a building across the street and rerouting of traffic until bomb technicians determined the package was empty. The Maryland State Fire Marshal's office said Monday that the wrapped package was one of two used in a Christmas program at the church and then thrown onto the roof of the building next door by some of the church youth.
