Police say a passerby reported the package on the lawn near the DMV just before 9 pm, describing the package as “bomb like.” The bomb squad took a remote xray of the package, but couldn’t make out what was inside. So, they deployed two robotic devices to unwrap the package. Turns out there was a brick inside. A wrapped brick. Police are continuing their investigation into who left the package there.
