There was a brief scare early this morning with a suspicious package at the Gazette located at 30 S. Prospect. Shortly before 3:30 A.M. Friday morning, a package of unknown origin was found near some propane tanks which alerted security and night staff at the Gazette. The regional bomb unit was called to the scene to investigate. Shortly after the owner of the package arrived and reclaimed the package which was eventually deemed safe and not an explosive device.
