House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) received a scare on Sunday afternoon after a bomb squad was called to his local office, as reported by local ABC news affiliate in Cincinnati.

A police offer located three black suitcases at the door of Boehner’s office at around 11:30 AM. Along with the bomb squad, both the police and fire departments in the West Chester area patrolled the scene. It took two hours for the squad to detonate the suitcases, but there were no bombs located.

All three of the suitcases included the words “Jobs and oil,” but no one was injured.
