Suspicious package is false alarm

AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) - A suspicious package found Sunday afternoon in Avondale turned out to be a bag of feces.

The Cincinnati Bomb Squad spent hours Sunday afternoon checking out a suspicious package.

Around 3:30 p.m., a Metro bus driver reported that suspicious package.It was wrapped in plastic and heavily duct taped next to a light post at Martin Luther King and Burnet.

The bomb squad called in bomb sniffing dogs and took X-Rays of the package and saw several cans taped together.

They used what bomb experts call a disrupter and blew it up. Investigators say it was not a bomb, but instead, cans filled with feces and taped together.

And police are still looking for who might have left it there.
