Suspicious Package Closes Streets

The area around Johnson Square in Savannah is back open this evening. Police closed off several blocks just after 6am this morning after someone reported a suspicious package.

It turns out it was a package with a DHL carrier service label on it containing petroleum samples that had come in on a ship overnight. Someone just left it near the Fed Ex and UPS boxes because there was no DHL dropoff box.

Officials are now trying to get the box to its intended destination.
