      Tuscaloosa VA Building Evacuated because of Suspicious Package

      An administrative building at the Tuscaloosa VA Center was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a man walked into the center, left a package on the front desk, and left.

      A spokesperson with the VA says that the man left the package, which resembled a pipe, laughed, and walked out. {}He was caught by VA security and is in custody of the Tuscaloosa Police Department.

      The bomb squad was called in to check out the package while the building was evacuated. {}We're told employees are now being allowed back inside.
