Exclamation BOMB THREAT in GRAND RAPIDS/GRCC

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The Grand Rapids Police Department has closed off a 2-mile radius in the downtown area after a suspicious package was found Friday morning.

The GRPD Bomb Squad has been dispatched to the scene near Ransom Avenue and Lyon Street NE.

That is where Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital security found the package.

A hospital official told 24 Hour News 8 the hospital is not affected and is fully operational. But the staff parking lot is closed, due to the closed streets in the area.

It may/may not ne a bomb. In todays society if it's an unknown item it's treated like a bomb. We are taught not to touch them and make call to the proper people.

Well if it was called in then GRPD police most likely called Spectrum and askes them to look around since they know what is normally on their campus.

So you travel clear across the country to do a simulation of this, and you could have done it right here at home, and had time to work on your Explorer.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – A suspicious container found near a college campus caused quite the concern in downtown Grand Rapids Friday morning.

Security staff from Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital found the item around 4:30 a.m. near Ransom Avenue and Lyon Street NE.

Story continues below

The plastic bin had a top with these words on it -- MTC Please Dont Disturb Testing In Progress

So the hospital security staff called 911.

Grand Rapids police officers and a bomb squad arrived at the scene, and closed off several streets to begin an investigation.

There was also a report of a bomb threat being called in to the Ford Fieldhouse on the campus of Grand Rapids Community College. So the college closed its campus and put classes on a two-hour delay. Then officials later sent a notification that classes will resume after 11:30 a.m. and staff should report.

Ferris State University delayed classes at its Grand Rapids Community College campus until 10 a.m.

The parking lot used by Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital was closed due to the affected closed streets. The hospital was fully operational during this time.

Then around 7:45 a.m., police cleared the scene after the bin was deemed safe, containing seismic testing equipment, accidentally left behind by a private contractor.

Good thing they didn't determine that it wasn't a bomb by blowing it up- that sounds like expensive equipment.

They still have to know what kind of switch it is before touching it.

Again, Detroit. If it blew up, who could tell the difference?
