BREAKING NEWS: Area closed off due to investigation

Friday, November 23, 2007

Shortly before 6 p.m. Friday evening, Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton notified The Brazil Times that a section of Jackson Street in front of the Clay County Justice Center was closed as a precautionary safety measure due to an investigation into an alleged pipe bomb.

Apparently, a local citizen brought what they believed to be a pipe bomb to the department to be checked by officials, which is why the area is closed off until members of the Indiana State Police Bomb Squad Unit can arrive and check the suspect item.

Local residents, especially those attending the Christmas in the Park Parade, are asked to avoid the area around the Clay County Justice Center.
