Xbox 360 Customized Buttons Mistaken for Bullets Attract Local Authorities

By   /   Feb 19, 2015

A bomb disposal squad and police forces were dispatched to a house in West Belfast, Northern Island after customized buttons of an Xbox 360 controller were confused for ammunition.

On Tuesday, an unknown caller informed the local authorities after discovering a large stock of bullet-styled Xbox 360 controller buttons in an abandoned house in the Sliabh Dubh Lane in West Belfast.

Both the police forces and a bomb disposal squad were immediately dispatched to deal with the situation. However, after thorough observation, the forces declared the collection as potentially unharmful.

A spokesperson for the local authorities also confirmed this much saying that the bullet-like objects are indeed unharmful and not suspicious in any way:

A number of items that were taken away have now been examined and declared to be not suspicious. A number of items that were taken away have now been examined and declared to be not suspicious.

You can come across a wide range of customized buttons like these on Amazon and eBay – just as the one shown in the featured images above.

Do you think someone actually took them for bullets or is this some weird act of trolling? Share your thoughts with us in the discussion box below.
