UPDATE: Suspicious device turns out to be false alarm

BULLARD, TX (KLTV) - BULLARD, TX (KLTV) - Wednesday afternoon, Bullard Police were called to the Bullard Post Office after reports of a suspicious package in the post office's lobby.

The box was reported around 5pm.

Postal inspectors say the Bullard fire marshal removed the box and took across the street to inspect it. He then discovered the box did not contain any explosives, rather a satellite receiver.

At this time, postal inspectors do not know why the box was left in the post office lobby, but they are investigating.
