Suspicious Suitcase found not to be dangerous….

Police tape can be seen at the Casino Arcade, close to where a suspicious suitcase was investigated, but determined not to be dangerous.

A sign of the times in this post-September 11, 2001 world is the seriousness that authorities take when dealing with potentially suspicious items. Such an incident occurred recently near the Grant Avenue and Ocean Terrace in Seaside Heights, near the Casino Pier, on the evening of Monday July 16th. Deemed suspicious, the area surrounding the suitcase was isolated by the Seaside Heights Police and Fire Departments while bomb squad officials examined the contents. Although the suitcase turned out to only contain clothes and other innocent items, the roads surrounding the area, and the Casino Arcade were closed off for several hours during the investigation.
