LUZERNE COUNTY, Pa. — A Pennsylvania 911 center received a "glitter bomb" in the mail last month, prompting an investigation by county authorities. 

The "glitter bomb," a package that shot out glitter when opened, was shipped to the Luzerne County 911 Center in September and was reportedly addressed to a specific employee, according to WBRE/WYOU-TV

The incident is under investigation by the Luzerne County District Attorney's Office. WBRE/WYOU-TV reported that municipal computers in Plains Township were examined as part of the investigation; a solicitor for the township confirmed that county detectives had looked at the computers but said no further comment could be made. 

Luzerne County 911 officials declined to comment on the incident but said they are cooperating with investigators.
