CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Authorities say a suspicious package in West Ashley turned out to be a wedding dress that was being returned.

Charleston police officials said the investigation began when a bomb threat was received at a Wappoo Road location. The road was closed between Highway 61 and Medalowlawn.

An employee at the location reported that he saw a woman force an oversized package into a mailbox nearby.

The package was then retrieved, and it contained a wedding dress that was being returned via mail, police officials said.

The road has since been re-opened.
