Edgewater Park open again after Bomb Squad blows up suspicious package

CLEVELAND - Edgewater Park is open for business today after the Cleveland Bomb Squad detonated a suspicious package overnight.

According to Metroparks officials, rangers were called to the beach just before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday for an individual causing a disturbance. The person told the rangers he had planted an explosive device in the sand, and the area was immediately evacuated.

The Bomb Squad later arrived and, after a search, found a fake device in the area. While the object was not an explosive, it was blown up as a precaution.

Authorities say Edgewater is safe for guests as of Wednesday. The incident is still under investigation.
