Posted by Terry Alexander

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A brief scare Thursday morning along Laburnum Avenue, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

Just before 8:30, someone noticed a backpack outside the Henrico Credit Union.

Police evacuated the building and surrounding businesses as a precaution.

A bomb squad robot was sent in, but there were only papers inside the backpack.
