Police: No threat at Citizens Bank Park
SOUTH PHILADELPHIA - July 24, 2012 (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Police bomb squad says there is no threat after they were called to Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday morning.
It was around 9:45 a.m. when police were called to 10th and Packer.
Sources tell Action News that a worker was cutting grass outside the stadium, home of the Philadelphia Phillies, when he apparently struck something. That worker, sources said, claimed that object "exploded."
Police were called to the scene and investigated the incident.
About an hour after it all began, police declared the incident "unfounded."
