Albuquerque police destroy suspect package at CU
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (12/19/07)--Bomb squad members on the Albuquerque police force detonated a suspicious-looking package found at Sandia Laboratory FCU Monday. Credit union employees phoned police Monday morning after discovering a box wrapped with duct tape in the credit union’s night drop-box (KOAT.com Dec. 17). After arriving on the scene and conducting an evacuation of about 75 children from a nearby day care center to another community center, police destroyed the suspicious package. Earlier this year, another Albuquerque-based credit union received two bomb threats. U.S. New Mexico FCU received one on Aug. 18, and one on Aug. 30--demanding money. In the Aug. 18 incident, a suspicious package was left in the credit union. It turned out to be harmless (News Now Sept. 5).
