Suspicious package investigated at Plaza East
A suspicious-looking package at Plaza East in the city's East End brought law enforcement officers out Monday morning.
The call of a suspicious package in the parking lot came in at about 11:47 a.m., a Metro 911 dispatcher said. The package turned out to be an empty box, Kanawha Sheriff Johnny Rutherford said.
"There was nothing to it," Rutherford said. Deputies and members of the bomb squad checked the package and were in the process of leaving just before 1 p.m. The plaza was not evacuated, he said.
