BRECKSVILLE -- School administrators in Brecksville say a suspicious package found outside an elementary school this morning was harmless and part of a geocaching treasure hunt game.
A custodian found the package this morning around 7 a.m. at Hilton Elementary. Police were called in to investigate and students were diverted directly to the high school gym and auditorium.
The building is for K-3 students.
The Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District issued the following statement:
"The suspicious package found outside Hilton Elementary School this morning was determined to be a geocaching device. These devices are used for real-world treasure hunts using GPS-enabled tools.
