Effingham Police were called late Monday morning to investigate a suspicious package at Rollin Hills Laundromat on N. Henrietta Street. Police Chief Jeff Fuesting said that on arrival officers determined that the package was “suspicious in nature” and called in the Secretary of State Police Bomb Squad to remove the item.
It was determined that the item was not any kind of incendiary device and Chief Fuesting said that there is no danger to the public. The Effingham Police Department will be conducting an investigation into who put the item in the laundromat. More information will be released as we get it.
