Crown Heights, NY - Suspicious Package in front of 770

A suspicious package had Police busy for nearly a half hour in front of 770. At around 10:45pm a foot post police officer noticed a blue canvass bag sitting near the steps for quite some time. The officer notified his Sergeant who in turn alerted the Bomb Squad and Shmira/Shomrim.

Shmira/Shomrim members responded and helped seal off and secure the area in preparation for the bomb squad. While waiting a man casually crossed the yellow police tape and attempted to retrieve the bag claiming it was his.Officers stopped him and after questioning him they allowed him to retrieve the bag.
