'Suspicious package' at school was a dog's toy

TNS Regional News • May 1, 2014 at 11:20 AM

Somewhere in northwest Toledo, a dog is probably missing its favorite toy.

A suspicious package found in a parking lot outside McGregor Elementary School on Rambo Lane on Wednesday proved, after Toledo police, fire, and the bomb squad detonated it, to be nothing more than a dark blue, pill-shaped cloth toy filled with white fluff.

Patrick Hickey, Washington Local Schools’ superintendent, posted on Twitter just before 11:30 a.m. that it was a toy and said “We will always err on the side of caution with kids/staff.”

He also wrote that this is the second time this year that a suspicious package was located near McGregor, and that students were safe at all times.

The school was not evacuated.
