Bomb squad clears suspicious package in downtown Concord

CONCORD ó The Cabarrus County Hazardous Device Response Team has determined that a “suspicious package” found Friday afternoon in downtown Concord is not a threat.
Emergency officials, who had blocked off part of downtown Concord, re-opened Church Street around 6:30 p.m. Friday.
In a press release, Concord Police Maj. Wendell Rummage did not say what the package was.
Rummage said a Kannapolis police officer reported seeing the package near the Cabarrus County Law Enforcement Center on Church Street around 3:50 p.m.
Concord Fire and Police officers restricted traffic in the area around the Cabarrus Sheriff’s Department and the Governmental Center.
The bomb squad then inspected the device, which Rummage described as a cylindrical container similar to the ones used in the surveying and the construction industry.
