Suspicious Package Found At Morehead Post Office

Police and Fire crews spent hours Saturday night at the Morehead post office trying to figure out whether two suspicious packages were dangerous.

Police say a woman discovered the two packages near a mail box just outside the post office. Haz-mat crews were called, who then called in the state's bomb squad.

A robot device picked up the packages and put them into a trailer. They were to later be detonated. Inside, investigators say were harmless tissues. Streets around the post office as well as part of the bypass were closed for nearly four hours.
