Suspicious Package Shuts Down Liberty Avenue

PITTSBURGH — Crews shut down part of Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield Tuesday after a suspicious package was found for the second time in less than 24 hours.
The package was found around 9 a.m. at PNC Bank near Cedarville Avenue and Corday Way in the area of West Penn Hospital.

The bomb squad found a used computer monitor inside the box.
Liberty Avenue was shut down for a short time while crews investigated.

It has since been reopened.

Another suspicious package was found in downtown Pittsburgh overnight.

Same principle of calling the SWAT team when someone sees a man with a gun in a house.

What makes a package suspicious in a van full of packages?
