A report about a suspicious package at Henry Ford Community College this week turned out to be a false alarm, according to Dearborn police.
Campus safety called police to the school at 10:44 p.m. on Jan. 14, reporting that they saw a strange package on a bench near the rear of the Fine Arts building. The package, police reported, was cylindrical in shape and wrapped in a black pastic bag.
Dearborn police blockaded the area within a 300 foot radius of the object and brought in a robot to approach it. However, the object turned out to be a bottle of Arizona Iced Tea, which had frozen to the bench with the bag around it.
The iced tea bottle was disposed of, and no explosive was found.
