UPDATE: All Clear After Suspicious Package Investigation In Dover

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Police in Dover say roadways are reopened, and the scene has been cleared, after Wednesday morning's suspicious package investigation.

Dover Police say the item under investigation came from a home on Kings Highway, and turned out to be a an inert training device, or disabled mortar round, from someone's closet. Police say when they arrived on scene, they thought the item might contain explosives, and sought assistance from The Delaware State Police Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit.

The DSP E.O.D. Team figured out what the mortar was, and found several other disabled grenades and other items in the house, leading officials to believe it was part of a collection.

The mortar was found inside of a closet, while an acquaintance of the homeowner was helping pack items, so the owners could move out of the home. At this time no charges have been filed.

Kings Highway, between Division Street and Route 13, along with Silver Lake Park were closed during the investigation, but were re-opened at around 3:00 PM.
