Police: Suspicious package at Mahopac M.S. harmless

Police say the suspicious package that was found on the campus of Mahopac Middle School last week turned out to be a harmless device intended to look like a bomb.

According to authorities, the package was discovered on Baldwin Place Road, an access road that runs behind the football field between Mahopac Middle and High schools. The bomb squad was called in as a precaution.

Students had already been dismissed from school at the time of the discovery, so the school did not go into a lockdown mode.
