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.
