Wheaton, IL -- Bomb Threat
Bomb Threat WHEATON, IL -- The DuPage County Bomb Squad responded to support the assessment of a "suspicious package" found near the doorsteps of a church Monday evening. The package, which bomb squad officials said had been "rendered safe" before 10 p.m., was found at St. Joseph's Orthodox Church, 412 Crescent Street. Crews let off a blast about 9 p.m. to inactivate the package, the city said. The box appeared to have an electronic doorbell wrapped up and sealed inside. Nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution, and Crescent Street was closed between Washington and Sumner, the city said. Police are investigating to determine who left the box at the church.
