Suspicious package shuts Stafford roads

At about 6 p.m. Sunday, Stafford County Sheriff’s officers responded to the report of a suspicious package on the corner of Mine Road and High Point Boulevard.

As a precaution, the streets in the surrounding area were closed until authorities could determine whether the package posed a danger, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bill Kennedy said in a statement.

The Stafford Sheriff’s Office, Stafford Fire and Rescue and a Marine Corps Emergency Response Squad from Quantico responded to the site.

The package was found to be harmless, and the roads were re-opened shortly afterward.
