Man arrested after a suspicious package was left at a business in West Bromwich on Tuesday (22/07).
The man, aged 60, was arrested from his home address this morning (24/07), after a suspicious package was left at a business on West Bromwich Hight Street causing traffic chaos on Tuesday (22/07).
A 100 metre cordon was placed around the premises on West Bromwich High Street just after 4PM and roads were closed as more than a dozen police officers secured the building, while a police sniffer dog determined if the package contained explosives.
After the parcel was found to be harmless, roads reopened shortly before 6PM with a small cordon remaining around the premises as an investigation into the hoax was launched.
The man remains in police custody and will be questioned in due course.
