Pulaski Co. Courthouse back open Monday following suspicious device Friday

The Pulaski County Courthouse opened normally Monday following a Friday that was anything but normal.


A suspicious device was located inside the courthouse Friday morning by the county’s maintenance department.  It was found concealed in a public restroom in the courthouse basement.


The Indiana State Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) responded.  No explosives were found.


The rest of the courthouse was searched with nothing suspicious found.


During the investigation, Pulaski County offices at the courthouse and annex were closed for employee safety.
