Suspicious package at One Government Center likely not a bombWritten by Paige Shermis | | firstname.lastname@example.org
A suspicious package left on a picnic table at One Government Center this morning is likely not a bomb, said Sgt. Joe Heffernan of the Toledo Police Department.
“Right now we are trying to process what was in the package. Right now it doesn’t appear to be a bomb,” Heffernan said.
According to surveillance video, an unidentified man left at the package about 7:30 a.m. at One Government Center.
“We do not know who that is, or why they left the package there,” Heffernan said.
Heffernan believes the Northwest Ohio Bomb Squad has left the scene, or is leaving soon.
“We hit [the package] with our water cannon to disperse the package, [and] I’m not sure the cleanup’s finished or not,” Heffernan said.
