Police clear suspicious packages at a Jackson post office

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Jackson Police cleared the four suspicious packages late Wednesday night as a possible bomb at the Medgar Wiley Evers Post Office in Downtown Jackson.

The four packages were considered suspicious Wednesday because they were unmarked and upon scanning wires were discovered.

Jackson Police Officer Colendula Green said late Wednesday night the boxes were breeched and no explosives were found in the four boxes.

Officer Green said the postal inspector was alarmed because the four boxes were unmarked and sitting outside the postal boxes.

The postal inspector then took one inside and x-rayed it and he saw wires in the box.

This is the third time unmarked boxes have been investigated in about a month in the Capital City.
