The bank was evacuated and the intersection of Roswell Rd near Wieuca Rd was shut down to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
SWAT removed the package from the bank and used a disrupter on it to render it safe. Atlanta police say a suspicious package at a bank that prompted road closures and a SWAT team response was a box of guidebooks.
Police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the books were left inside a Wells Fargo Bank near the city’s northern border with Sandy Springs Wednesday morning. Jones says the building was evacuated and officials closed the area to pedestrian and vehicular traffic while a SWAT team investigated.
Package turned out to be guidebooks.
