Winthrop University officials say operations the Rock Hill campus have resumed to normal after a suspicious package was found in a bird bath outside Tillman Hall Wednesday afternoon.

Winthrop University Police Chief Frank Zebedis says that just after 2 p.m., a female student came across the small package and contacted authorities.

Both the Winthrop University Police Department and Rock Hill Police Bomb Squad responded to the scene, conducting an X-ray examination of the box and determined it was no threat.
