An employee at the Anaheim Memorial Medical Center could be in trouble with the law after a hazmat hoax.

A call of a suspicious vehicle in the medical center's parking lot Thursday sent a bomb squad and a hazmat team to the location.

A truck was wrapped in plastic with signs saying the truck had hazardous materials inside.

The owner of the truck, an employee at the hospital, said he suspected it was a prank. That led police to a co-worker who admitted to the stunt.
