The U.S. Bank branch in La Pine was closed Tuesday afternoon while the Oregon State Police Bomb Squad investigated two suspicious packages. At 1:41 Tuesday afternoon, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office received a call that the two packages were found inside the bank.   Neither the bank nor the Sheriffs Office received any kind of threatening note, but decided to play it safe and closed the branch for the rest of the afternoon.   The Oregon State Police Bomb Squad was dispatched and determined the devices were smokeless cigarette containers used to help a person stop smoking and have been given back to the owner.   The Sheriff’s Office says placement of these devices were not intended to threaten or cause harm.
