RIDGWAY, Pa. (AP) – Three packages containing lollipops and unspecified paperwork were responsible for a bomb squad being called to a northwestern Pennsylvania courthouse.
Ridgway police tell The Bradford Era the three packages were sent by a “disabled” woman who lacked “malicious intent” and will not be charged.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Police Investigating Shooting In Homewood
Elk County court administrator Martha Masson received the packages Wednesday and was alarmed because they were heavy and “one had a lumpiness to it.”
The packages also didn’t have return addresses and were mailed to a judge who police say not only doesn’t exist in Elk County, he apparently doesn’t exist anywhere in Pennsylvania.READ MORE: 'Unity In The Community' Event Held In Greensburg
