Bomb Squad called to Hazelwood Elementary School over suspicious package

 

CPD LogoClarksville, TN – Emergency responders were dispatched to Hazelwood Elementary School (2623 Tiny Town Road) this afternoon after a suspicious package was discovered by school personnel near the entrance to the school.

The Clarksville Police Department cordoned off the area, and ensured that all Clarksville-Montgomery County School System personnel were evacuated from the building.

Then the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad sent their robot to inspect the object, and a short time later used a single shotgun blast to disable the suspicious package. The container turned out to be a Captain Jack Sparrow Compass box full of Pokemon trading cards.

The Bomb Squad as a matter of due caution must treat every call out as if it was a bomb, this ensures that if the suspicious package turns out to be a live explosive device they have done everything possible to protect life, limb, and property.

No children were present at the school when the object was found.
