Suspicious package winds up being makeup case

NORTH BERGEN – According to North Bergen Police, they helped assist the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office today around 11 a.m. at 8701 Bergenline Ave. when a suspicious package was reported at a bus stop at that location.
Police notified the Jersey City Bomb Squad, whose K9 dog initially had a positive response to the “potential presence” of explosives. The area was cleared and all schools in the area were placed on “lock down” before a robot was used to “disrupt” the package, police said.
Upon a further investigation, the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office found that the package was a makeup case.
