Sus­pi­cious pack­age sent to Lim­baugh not harm­ful

The Washington Times Daily - - Life -

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.
