The Twin River Casino in Lincoln wasn’t evacuated but the parking lot was temporarily closed Saturday morning until police determined there was no threat.
The friend had already gone inside, so they agreed over the phone that she would leave the cooker next to her friend’s car.
WPRI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1IXxH8P) a man told casino security he saw the cooker next to a car in the parking lot at about 9:40 a.m. She said she was meeting a friend who wanted to borrow it.
Police say two friends trying to hand off a rice cooker at a Rhode Island casino caused a brief security scare.
State police said their story checked out, and the two friends apologized.
