Suspicious Box


On March 30th, 2016, at 9:31 a.m. officers responded to Front Street in relation to an unmarked box that had been placed at the base of a mailbox outside the main doors of City Hall. Police cordoned off the area to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Based on witness accounts and video from the downtown CCTV cameras the box was examined on site. The box contained only household items. It appears that the box may have been dropped off for donation purposes. The area was reopened by 10:15 a.m.
