Police: No bomb found inside bank in High Point after report of ‘suspicious package’
HIGH POINT, N.C. — Police investigating a “suspicious package” said no bomb was found inside the Bank of North Carolina in High Point on Monday afternoon.
The package was found inside the bank at 2630 Eastchester Drive around 10:45 a.m., according to Capt. Mike Kirk.
Employees called police upon seeing the package was wrapped in tape, which is “not the norm” for items in safety deposit boxes, according to Captain Gordon Stallings of the High Point Police Department.
“Anytime you see something that causes the hair to stand up on the back of your head or just feel not right you’re always wise to go ahead and contact somebody, be patient and not jump to any conclusions,” said Stallings.
Both High Point Police and the Greensboro Police Bomb Squad responded to the scene.
