SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a suspected mail bomb that
forced the evacuation of a Savannah courthouse was a hoax.
Police spokeswoman Judy Pal says a bomb squad determined the
device was bogus after removing and inspecting it.
After the suspicious package was found Monday in the district
attorney's office, the Chatham County Courthouse was evacuated
about 1 p.m. and nearby streets were closed.
Police say a worker opening the mail noticed wires inside an
envelope addressed to the district attorney's office. Officers
swept the building with bomb dogs later Monday afternoon.
