Dispatchers got a call about a suspicious package at 7-11 on Chestnut Street in South Charleston Monday evening. Police say the clerk noticed a vehicle that drove by the area several times and went outside to see what was going on. They say he saw a suspicious box and called police.
The Kanawha County Sheriff Bomb Squad was called into help with the situation. They opened the box and found nothing inside.
