Forgotten briefcase disrupts downtown traffic

Aug 25, 2011 12:49:00 PM - thestate.com
A forgotten briefcase forced officials to shut down a downtown block near the Strom Thurmond federal building until it could be checked for danger.

The briefcase was left in the rear parking lot of the building, and reported around 11:30 a.m., Columbia-Richland Fire Service spokesman Brick Lewis said.

The 1800 block of Park Street and the 1000 block of Laurel Street – between Assembly and Gadsden streets – were closed to traffic during the incident. The streets were expected to be re-opened around 12:15 p.m.
