Mail Bomb Scare

By  | 

There was quite a scare Wednesday morning in one Tallahassee neighborhood as the bomb squad was called out.

Shortly before noon authorities were called to 2916 North Shamrock where someone reported a suspicious container next to a mailbox.

Inside that container, authorities found a liquid substance which they say appears to be non-toxic and non-explosive.

"It was kind of a clear brown substance, almost like an orange color to it, but at this time we do not know what it was," says Tallahassee Police SGT Eric Childs.

Tests on the liquid are ongoing. Anyone with information on who may have left the container can call Tallahassee Police at 850-891-4200.
