"Bomb Diz Place": Suspicious Box, Note Lead to Evacuation of Walton Business

A note inside a sealed pallet at a Walton business prompted the Boone County Sheriff's Office to investigate a possible bomb threat on Monday.

A box was found inside the the facility with "BOMB" written on it.

The building was evacuated and the Cincinnati Fire Department's Hazardous Device Unit responded to the scene.

The sheriff's department is still investigating and collected the box for processing.
