Purses and bags to be checked at Tyler Rose Stadium

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The Smith County Sheriff's Department will be checking all purses and bags as visitors enter Trinity Mother Francis Rose Stadium this weekend and next weekend, according to Tyler ISD.

There was no specific threat and this is a safety precaution, according to the Tyler Independent School District Public Information Officer Dawn Parnell.

To avoid delays, the district recommends refraining from bringing bags to the game if possible.
