Square reopened after suspicious package found at Hall courthouse

POSTED: June 7, 2013 3:39 p.m.

The area around the Hall County courthouse has been reopened after a suspicious package found nearby led to road closures.

Spring Street was closed between Main and Bradford streets around 2 p.m. while the package, a backpack under a bench, was checked out.

With the county's bomb-sniffing dog unavailable due to training, a dog was brought in from Cherokee County to assist in the investigation. The package was determined not to be dangerous and the area was reopened.
