A woman was temporarily held at the Sta. Ana police station after making a bomb joke while the security guard in a mall along Bajada checked her bag Wednesday.

The security guard on duty at Echo Laurel in Abreeza Mall, Marilou Bacabio said one Melanie C. Lauzon, 27, a resident of Barangay Kaputian, Island Garden City of Samal, made a joke that there was a bomb in her bag when it was inspected.

Bacabio was accompanied by her American fiance, James Webb, 55 when they entered the mall at around 4:49 pm.

Bacabio said the joke caused fear and alarm to the said establishment prompting her to call the police. Lauzon was able to post bail Thursday afternoon.
