ELYRIA — The Lorain County Bomb Squad was called to Ridge Tool in Elyria Saturday and police shut down roads after employees reported a suspicious package in the parking lot.
At 1:47 p.m., officers were called to 400 Clark St. for the complaint.
According to a police report, the package was found on top of a dumpster and had wires sticking out of the bottom. Officers deemed the package suspicious and cleared the houses directly left of the package and closed traffic in the area.
The Bomb Squad used a robotic water cannon to destroy the package, but police said the threat was not credible.
According to the report, the package was found to be a wooden box wrapped in duct tape and had a shirt taped on top. No explosives were found in the box.
