Police: No threat from box at Detroit newspaper offices

DETROIT (AP) – Police say a box left in front of a building housing the offices of the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News posed no threat and the building was reopened.

It was evacuated earlier Sunday evening when the box was discovered.

The Detroit Free Press said police allowed occupants to return to the building after they examined a Detroit News coin newspaper box placed in front of the building and found nothing threatening. The Detroit News reports the box was removed.

The box had a white ribbon around it and stenciled on the side were “POW.” Visible from the front window of the box was a 1995 edition of the Detroit News.

Monday is the anniversary of the beginning of a bitter strike against the newspapers on July 13, 1995.
