— Employees of four offices buildings on Providence Road in Chapel Hill were forced outside Monday morning while authorities investigated a suspicious package left outside a real estate office.

A Chapel Hill Police Department spokesman said a device was found inside a brief case or suit case at 319 Providence Road.

Workers were asked to stay away from the area until the investigation is complete.

    If you're curious about what this was all about, the Herald Sun (and their web site) has a full explanation of what this was (a misunderstanding over a suitcase).

    I wish the Chapel Hill PD would let us know what is going on in this area. They will not let us leave and but are telling us there is a bomb next door.
