Geocaching is supposed to be a harmless game in which techno-savvy treasure hunters use Global Positioning Devices to find trinkets hidden in remote locations.
But a Saturday trek for hidden “treasure” under the Tybee Pavillion turned out to be anything but harmless.
Whoever hid a geocache there decided the best waterproof container would be a pipe with two end-caps. Problem is, that’s exactly what a pipe bomb looks like.
Tybee Police Chief Jimmy Price confirmed Tuesday night that what was initially suspected to be a bomb was actually a geocache.
