There was a bomb threat in Syracuse, New York, yesterday! Never forget the potentially tragic events of 6/2! EVERYONE, BE CAREFUL!
Syracuse, NY — Clinton Square was cleared of people this afternoon as Syracuse police examined a suspicious box left at the base of the park’s Civil War monument.
A passerby reported the suspicious box to police about 2 p.m. and police were standing by the box while waiting for a bomb disposal expert to examine it.
We can never be too vigilant! We live in an age of terrorism, and it will require all of us to be unafraid to speak up about suspicious behavior if we feel a threat is imminent! If you see something say something!
So what did the box look like?
The box is a metal “Sex and the City” trivia game container. A man appeared to leave the game in the square at about 1:40 p.m., Lt. Joe Cecile, of the Syracuse police, said.
Oh. Hmm. But it could still be a bomb! You never know! It would be just like a terrorist to use a powerful symbol of our nation’s greatest heroes (Carrie Bradshaw) to strike fear into our hearts!
UPDATE: Police reopened Clinton Square at about 4 p.m. and determined the box did, in fact, contain game pieces from the “Sex and the City” trivia game.
