Officials Investigate Suspicious Package

( 4UMF NEWS ) Officials Investigate Suspicious Package:

Chicago police bomb and arson unit investigators were able to “resolve” a situation involving a suspicious package in the Pilsen neighborhood this afternoon, police said.

The call came in to police at about 2:51 p.m. for a suspicious package found on the 1600 block of West 18th Place, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.

Zala could not provide any details about what the item was but said it was deemed, “harmless.”

Investigators were on the scene and traffic was being diverted in the area, according to officials. By 5:30 p.m., the streets were reopened in the area.

Bomb and arson police on the scene yelled “Fire in the hole!” a little before 4:40 p.m. and there was a loud explosion, after which emergency crews began to disperse. The “situation has been resolved” by about 5 p.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety, who did not have details.

A police source said preliminary information indicated that the suspicious package was believed to resemble a stick of dynamite. Officials said it was found in a garbage can in front of a building.

Officials from Benito Juarez High School, 2150 S. Laflin St., ordered the school on lockdown as a precaution as investigators dealt with the incident, according to Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Marielle Sainvilus. The school was reopened and people were allowed to leave after officials said there were no safety concerns, she said.
