NC courthouse, jail evacuated after package left
NC courthouse, jail evacuated as Air Force bomb robot tears into package left at entrance
By The Associated Press

GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) ' An Air Force bomb squad robot tore into a suspicious package left outside a North Carolina courthouse and jail that have been evacuated as a precaution.

Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders says a suspicious package was left outside an entrance to the Goldsboro building that houses the courts, county offices and the jail. Winders says some downtown businesses within about two blocks of the building are also closed.

Winders says the package was found by a security guard around 7 a.m. Monday and a brief inspection by a deputy determined the package could contain a bomb.

The sheriff says jail inmates were moved to safety and hundreds of people who work in the county buildings were prevented from entering.
