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.
