Police identify suspicious package that shut down road in West Ashley
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Authorities say a suspicious package in West Ashley turned out to be a wedding dress that was being returned.
Charleston police officials said the investigation began when a bomb threat was received at a Wappoo Road location. The road was closed between Highway 61 and Medalowlawn.
An employee at the location reported that he saw a woman force an oversized package into a mailbox nearby.
The package was then retrieved, and it contained a wedding dress that was being returned via mail, police officials said.
The road has since been re-opened.
