2-8-06 - Denison authorities were on scene of a bomb scare at the Morton Plaza on Morton Street in Denison. Authorities took the package to a wooded area behind the shopping center.
They were called in after someone found a suspicious package in the mailbox of a Dollar General store. Authorities took the package to a wooded area behind the shopping center where the US Postal Inspector from Fort Worth opened the package with extreme caution and found clothes inside of it making it a false alarm for a bomb.
The FBI, Denison Police Department, Denison Fire Department, and the Denison Postal Inspector were on scene dealing with the situation.
Morton was closed until they could get the package into the wooded area, but has now re-opened. The woman who owned the package was called to come and pick it up from the scene.
