Roads reopened near Navy Exchange, no bomb found

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:55 a.m. HST, May 19, 2014

Roads leading to the Navy Exchange reopened after officials investigated a suspicious package and found it was not dangerous.

Traffic cameras showed Radford Drive closed and a bomb squad technician putting on a protective suit at about 7:30 a.m.

John Hageman, a Navy spokesman, said the package was found just before 7 a.m. and Radford Drive and Bougainville Road around the exchange were closed as federal, military and Honolulu police responded to the incident.

Hageman said a command post was established and roads were closed Monday morning "in an abundance of caution and following routine procedures."

The object found was turned over to Honolulu police.

Just another training drill. Notice how every so called suspicious package requires the call out of the bomb squad, fire dept and assorted police agencies. Also have you noticed that the public is never told what these guys find when they examine these so called suspicious packages. Wonder why?? Wake up, this stuff is all bull. And how about you guys with the Third Estate. When are you guys gonna ask the hard questions or are you all part of the game that is going on??

I know we always say it's better to be "safe than sorry." But C'mon? Every unattended box or package and people freak out? Last one found was what, someones lunch with spam musi's inside and another was recently purchased clothes from a store? PTSD NationWide!
