PUTNAM, Conn., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- A woman ordered a drink at a Connecticut Dunkin' Donuts drive-through window and handed the clerk a package and a note saying it contained a bomb, police said.

The package wasn't a bomb, and state police said they were searching for the woman, The Hartford Courant reported.

The woman got her drink at the Putnam Dunkin' Donuts about 9:45 p.m. Thursday, and then handed the clerk the note, which said the bomb would be set off and a person in the backseat was threatening her, police said. The clerk ran from the window and called 911.
