Suspicious package draws police response
06/09/2019

(KAIR)--A suspicious package, found at an Atchison home late Sunday morning, was found to pose no threat.

That confirmation is provided by Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, who told MSC News the package was discovered around 10:00 outside of a residence in the 600 block of South 6th Street. “We were joined at the scene by Officers with the Leavenworth Police Department’s Bomb and Explosive Squad, who came to the scene and have been there with us for the past several hours.”

As of 12:15 Sunday afternoon, the area where the package was discovered was blocked off to passersby.

“It had the appearance of being suspicious, whether or not it was an explosive device or some type of bomb,” Wilson said, adding that investigators now know it was not an explosive device.

Wilson said the investigation is ongoing. “It is a suspicious package that’s still being investigated.”

No suspects are immediately named.
