[VIDEO & PHOTOS – Updated 11:00] The area around Police Headquarters is closed off after a suspicious package was found in front of the Municipal building. The package, which appears to be a suitcase and suit bag, were left sitting about 15 feet from the stairs.
LFD, OEM and EMS are on the scene as they await for the arrival of K-9 units.
“With the death of Bin Laden, we’re just not taking any chances”, an official at the scene said.
Court sessions were delayed due to no access to the building.
UPDATE: The scene has been cleared by the K-9 units. The package turned out to be clothing. TLS
Yoish! Yussele! I told you you would forget it. Now what will you eat in yeshiva? All the kokosh cake is in there!
I’m glad that this was just clothes and nothing else, but my question is how does one forget their suitcase and suit bag, did’nt they realize that something was missing?
A story about a suspicious package and no coverage of bin ladens ending?
I think in cases like these the person who left their stuff out should be sent a bill for the cost of bringing the state police bomb squad and their dog out to Lakewood. I bet the town would be a lot less cluttered!
maybe ut was stolen goods ?
It was a dry run. Get ready people!
to #4 I can’t agree more with you, send the owner of this stuff a bill, and a bill from the dog for dog food? and again to #4 bravo
maybe one of the defendents in court planned on a quick getaway…!
It was not the state police, rather it was the Ocean County Sheriff’s office.
hey!! thats my stuff, i forgot it waiting for a cab, oh well..
im not going to claim it otherwise ill get into trouble!!
it was Lakewood politicans trying to get news coverage that bin laden’s guys are retaliating against major us interests like Lakewood’s police station!!
Better to be safe people. Lakewood has a huge Jewish population. I would not be surprised if terrorists don’t already have a target painted on it. Heads up Intel Divisions, keep those inter-agency lines of communications open and spend the trivial DHS money wisely. Al-Qaeda has more than a foothold south of the border…
Sometimes luggage and dry cleaning is just luggage dry cleaning, if I went through my life thinking every forgotten/lost bag was a bomb I could not do my job let alone leave the house. We need to stop overreacting and living in fear.
this is such a phony a dog cant smell a bomb in a suitcase with smelly cloth that has detonators that would need a robot to open the ziper !!!!!!
