A Trump campaign sign in Easton, Maryland recently raised eyebrows.
Easton, Maryland received a scare when a Trump and Pence campaign sign had a suspicious device on it.
The Maryland Bomb Squad checked out the devices on the back of the signs only to find out the suspicious devices were just alarms.

See what our friends over at Fox News had to report:
Suspicious devices attached to five political yard signs in Maryland — including at least one Trump-Pence sign — led to multiple calls to the bomb squad, according to reports.
The Office of the State Fire Marshal Bomb Squad determined the devices on the yard signs, located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore Sunday and Monday, weren’t harmful and were removed.
Lately, a lot of Trump signs have been vandalized across America.
Maybe that’s why there was an alarm system on the campaign sign.

CBS Baltimore gave a more detailed report and added this:
A bomb squad responded to multiple calls for suspicious devices being attached to political yard signs on Maryland’s Eastern Shore Sunday and Monday, including at least one pro-Trump sign, the state fire marshal’s office said.
The first call came in around 9 a.m. in the 100 block of Idlewild Road in Easton. Officers called the bomb squad after looking at the sign, which was near Idlewild Park
The bomb squad later determined the device was not harmful and removed it. The fire marshal’s office said four other similar devices have been removed since Sunday morning in the Easton.
A while back a man was caught destroying Trump and Pence sign in Maryland.
So, it’s not strange to hear someone put an alarm on their signs.
