Suspicious Package Evacuated Part of Bergen Community Campus
Bergen County Police Department Bomb Squad deemed the package safe after a two-hour investigation in the campus mailroom. Only part of the campus was evacuated.
A suspicious package, which county police say turned out to be "harmless," caused part of the Bergen Community College Paramus campus to be evacuated Tuesday afternoon.
The package was deemed suspicious by mailroom workers as it was an unexpected delivery which had "suspicious handwriting and no sender information" according to Lt. James Mullin of the Bergen County Police Department.
Mullin said the entire campus was not evacuated, just the mailroom and surrounding area for a two-hour period as Bomb Squad personnell investigated.
The bomb squad later deemed the package "safe" said Mullin.
