    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.
