Suspicious package at Gloucester County College discovered to be bible, deemed suspicious due to Armenian writing, authorities say | NJ.com



Here's a weird story that fell through the cracks last month. A "suspicious package" caused evening classes to be canceled, and evacuation of the building, at Gloucester County (NJ) College last month.

The package had foreign writing on the outside, and was on the campus for several days before suspicions were aroused. So the package was taken out of the building and placed on a golf cart several hundred yards from classroom buildings. The local bomb squad checked out the package, and then x-rayed it.

Inside the package was a bible.

And the suspicious foreign writing on the outside of the package?

It was Armenian. You know.....Armenia, dontcha?

Here's a geography refresher....


The Republic of Armenia was once part of the Soviet Union. The majority of citizens of Armenia (98%) are ethnic Armenians. Most are Christian, and have their own distinctive alphabet and language, though Russian is a second language in the landlocked nation.

OK.....the powers that be were acting on the side of caution in handling the package.

Be vigilant in these dangerous days, by all means.

However.....somehow I feel there's a real funny joke to be made about this entire escapade. But I just can't think of one now.
