Suspicious Package Closes DeKalb County Highway

ATLANTA (AP) -- A DeKalb County highway was shut down Tuesday morning when police found a suspicious looking package at a nearby motel.

Television station WSB reports that a woman called 911 from a business on Memorial Drive in DeKalb County Tuesday morning and said she needed to go to a crisis center. WSB reports that the woman also said she left an explosive device in a motel room.

Police went to the motel and found a package that matched the woman's description. Police said the woman was arrested.

WSB reported that a police bomb squad later determined the package only contained computer parts and was harmless. Memorial Drive was shortly reopened.
