Suspicious package at VA only contained papers

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A bag of papers left on a counter at the Biloxi Veterans Administration Hospital caused quite a stir Monday afternoon.

VA officials called Biloxi Police around 3pm after an attendant found a suspicious bag left by a patient. Biloxi Police told WLOX News the attendant, not wanting to put patients in possible danger, took the bag outside and placed it inside a bar-b-que grill and covered it with a blanket.

The Biloxi Police Department Bomb Squad responded to investigate the package. After x-raying the bag, police determined there was nothing more than papers inside.
