Goldsboro, N.C. — The courthouse in Goldsboro was evacuated Monday morning after a security guard found a suspicious package, Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders said.
The bomb squad from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base was called out to deal with the package outside the courthouse on Walnut Street.
A bomb squad robot tore into the package and found that it wasn't a bomb, Winders said.
Jail inmates were moved to safety, and hundreds of people who work in the county buildings were prevented from entering, the sheriff said.
