COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) - A suspicious device found near a Bartholomew County courthouse was identified as CDs.
Officials say, just after 7 a.m., a Bartholomew County sheriffs deputy found a suspicious package at the south side of the county’s courthouse, 234 Washington St., Columbus.
Police on the scene say the package is described as a 6 by 6-inch package wrapped in black silk ribbon.
Review of a security camera recording found the package was dropped off about midnight near a basement entrance to the courthouse in the city about 40 miles south of Indianapolis. A courthouse employee told investigators that her daughter left the package there for her.
Courthouse employees were not allowed inside the building until the scene was clear, which was around 9:40 a.m. Thursday.
The area was blocked off and an Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit was called to the scene Thursday morning. Washington Street was blocked near the courthouse. Traffic on Second and Third streets were not blocked off.
