Deputies: 'Suspicious' Boxes Left at Fernley Sub-Station

Posted: Updated:

An investigation is underway after authorities say someone left three suspicious boxes at the Lyon County Sheriff's Office Fernley Sub-Station.

One box was located Monday around 8:15am near the sub-station's fence and the other two boxes were located inside the parking lot near a trash dumpster.

Due to the suspicious nature of the packages, deputies locked down - or evacuated all surrounding county and city facilities.

NAS Fallon Bomb Squad along with the Washoe County Sheriff's Bomb Squad responded. Washoe Deputies, using an X-ray machine later determined the boxes were filled with books, possibly actually meant for the Lyon County Library, which is located to the south of the sheriff's sub-station.

At this time, Lyon County deputies say it's unknown why the suspect(s) went through the trouble to force entry into the Fernley Sub-Station to leave boxes of books.

If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call Secret Witness at 775-322-4900 or text your tip to 847411. Your call will remain anonymous.

You can also call the Lyon County Sheriff's Office at 775-577-5023.
