“What would be normal sometimes, now becomes a suspicious behavior, and I know that people are on alert in that way, but we don’t mind if people give us information.”

A duffel bag left at the East 55th Street RTA station prompted Cleveland police to close off parts of I-490 today. RTA halted trains east of Tower City.  A few hours later, a bomb squad found the bag to be harmless.

Mayor Jackson says the city is talking today with organizers of the annual Rite-Aid Cleveland Marathon, to discuss increased security.  The event is May 19th.
