Suspicious package found near site of the Super Bowl


This morning, it was reported that  a suspicious package was found near Cowboys Stadium, site of the Super Bowl XLV between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.

After careful inspection by a bomb squad expert, a suspicious package in a sewer just north of Cowboys Stadium turned out to be just trash.

Officers closed part of Randol Mill Road between the stadium and the Wal-Mart after someone spotted a car stopped near a traffic island. Security officers say the car’s occupant threw something into the sewer, then drove away.

With the Feb. 6 Super Bowl looming, police didn’t want to take any chances, so bomb experts were immediately called out to check the manhole and sewers.

By 9:45 a.m., the all-clear was given.

It’s not clear if any arrests or legal action was taken against the litterbugs.

It is not clear to what the contents were, but some have speculated that is the offensive playbook used by current head coach Jason Garrets during his predecessor’s, Wade Phillips, last eight games.
