Empty suitcase brings out bomb squad

By midday, things were back to normal at the Goddard Post Office.

But earlier in the day, two blocks along Main Street and two blocks along Third Avenue were closed as authorities treated a suitcase as a possible bomb. The Wichita Bomb Squad assisted local authorities.

At about 7:30 a.m., postal employees opening for the day discovered a suitcase sitting on the floor. The building and surrounding area were evacuated as a precaution. Authorities determined it was just an empty suitcase, and an “all clear” was given just before 10 a.m.
