Metra train halted as Wilmette cops inspect suspicious package

(The following appeared at ChicagoBreakingNews.com on January 23, 2010.)

CHICAGO — An inbound Metra Union Pacific North Line train was delayed about an hour north of Wilmette as police there investigated a suspicious package on a curb at the station, officials said.

Just before 10 a.m., Wilmette police were called to the train station to inspect the package, said Tom Miller, a spokesman for Metra.

Southbound Metra line No. 334, scheduled to arrive at the Ogilvie Transportation Center at 10:30 a.m., remained at the Hubbard Woods station, three stops north of the
Wilmette station, during the police activity.

Police determined the package was trash about 10:30 a.m. and train service resumed, police said.
