Austrian police called in a bomb squad when a pedestrian reported a buzzing package in a garbage can.

"The package was a green plastic bag wrapped in brown postal tape - upon being touched, it turned out to be vibrating," police in the western Austrian town of Rankweil said in a statement about the Thursday incident.

The police patrol at the scene called in a bomb squad, which opened the package.

"The uncertain situation became less tense when it turned out the package contained a vibrator that was on as well as four pornographic video tapes and several magazines," the statement said.
