Suspicious package sent to Limbaugh not harmful
Authorities say a suspicious package sent in the mail to Rush Limbaugh’s South Florida home was not dangerous or hazardous.
Palm Beach police spokesman Fred Hess said the item investigated Thursday afternoon turned out to be an electronic plaque sent by a listener of the radio talk show host’s program as a “business opportunity” for Mr. Limbaugh. It concerned the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth.
Mr. Hess said no charges will be filed against the sender because no crime was committed. He said the sender was very apologetic.
He said Mr. Limbaugh’s staff members saw what appeared to be wires in the package and called the police. Officers asked the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad to investigate the package, and they determined it was safe to open.
