WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) - An unattended box at a Williamsburg post office resulted in a call to the Virginia State Police Bomb Disposal Unit Sunday.
According to Assistant Chief Bob Ryalls with the James City County Fire Department, someone spotted an unattended box on a counter at the Monticello Post Office around 11 a.m. Police were called to the post office, and found a sealed shoe box sitting on the counter.
The person who found the shoe box told police no one was in the building when she spotted it.
Police set up a perimeter and closed off the building. Ryalls said the Virginia State Police Bomb Disposal Unit responded, and used a robot to fire a water slug at the suspicious package.
Investigators determined the box was empty.
There was no damage to the post office, according to Ryalls, and the scene was cleared by around 3:30 p.m.
