“Using their technology and training, they rendered that package safe,” he said.

Detectives will look into who left the package and what was inside.

“Please, if you’re going to drop something off and no one is home, leave it with the building tenant, put some type of name or note on it so if it’s found, we have a way to contact you so something like this doesn’t happen,” Bartlett said.


A suspicious package was delivered to an apartment at River Commons in the 100 block of E. Helena Street, Montgomery County dispatch confirmed. The package was delivered without any labels.

Crews were dispatched at 9:18 p.m. to stage a fire, and the Dayton Bomb Squad is on scene.
