Palm Beach Courthouse Reopens, Van Was No Threat
The federal courthouse in Palm Beach was closed this morning due to a suspicious van parked nearby. The van had derogatory language printed on it. The language was critical of police handling of a child molestation case.
West Palm Beach police spokesman Chase Scott says a police dog alerted to the possibility of explosives inside a rental van after 8 a.m. Monday. It was checked because of unspecified derogatory comments written on the outside of the van.
After the bomb squads checked out the van and determined there was no threat, the courthouse reopened.
A post office and state health department building were also evacuated.
The line between concern and fear and paranoia is blurring quickly.
