LOGAN — A suspicious package delayed the opening of the Logan post office early Friday morning.

A police bomb squad detonated the package to render it safe. But in the end, it turned out to be simply a box of scrapbooking materials that were blown up.

The incident began about 6:15 a.m. when a janitor noticed the suspicious package in the main lobby, said Logan Police Capt. Eric Collins.

"The fact it was sitting in the lobby on a counter and it didn't appear to have any labeling or mailing address" was the reason it was considered suspicious, he said.

After patrol officers inspected the package, they called the bomb squad. The situation was resolved just after 9 a.m.

Collins said he did not know why the package was sitting on the counter. But based on its contents, he said investigators believe it was likely just a mistake and it was a package that was intended to be mailed rather than one purposely left to appear like a bomb.
