OHP Bomb Squad called after suspicious package found near Braum's

Enid police cordoned off a 50-yard area near Braum’s, 4202 W. Garriott, Thursday night after being contacted about a suspicious package in a tree near the restaurant.

Sgt. Billy Varney said police were contacted at 7:41 p.m. in reference to a man who had entered the restaurant and stayed for a few minutes, then was seen placing something in a tree on the southwest corner of the property before leaving in a vehicle.

Police examined the object, described as a black cylinder 31⁄2 inches long and 1 inch wide zip-tied to several branches of the tree, Varney said. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol bomb squad was called from Oklahoma City to examine the object and the store was evacuated. Members of Enid Fire Department also were called to the scene.

The bomb squad arrived and was still on the scene at midnight dealing with the package.
