WAYNE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol said a package that fell from a plane over Warren County on Wednesday belonged to the U.S. Air Force. The U.S. Air Force says this is not true.

A bomb squad, state police, and Warren County deputies were called to the 6700 block of Furnas-Oglesby Road early Wednesday. Construction workers told police they'd seen a package fall from a low-flying plane around 10:20 a.m.

Wednesday afternoon, OSHP officials said the package belonged to the U.S. Air Force, and that the USAF had retrieved the property.

The U.S. Air Force says not only didn't they retrieve it, the package does not belong to them.

No details have been released as to what was in the package.
