Officers located an ice chest (cooler) placed near the entrance to the police substation. No threats had been received. Because no explosive detection K-9s were on duty at the time, a request went out to our allied agencies.

Trains were held briefly while the item was x-rayed and again later when it was opened. TSOC was notified of the incident (TSA-07-19380-16).
