Official: Bag Containing Ammunition Found At Delaware County School

BRYN MAWR, Pa. (CBS) – A Delaware County school was evacuated Wednesday after a small bag containing ammunition was found by a security guard, according to a school official.

The administrative team at Barrack Hebrew Academy immediately notified the Radnor Police Department of the discovery and evacuated the main school building as a precautionary measure.

During a police investigation, the school dismissed students early and by 2:00 p.m. all students had departed and police cleared the building.

School officials say at the recommendation of Radnor police, the building will be closed Wednesday evening and will reopen Thursday for a regular school day.
