GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies and a hazardous devices unit responded to investigate a suspicious vehicle at a church in Greenville County on Saturday evening.

The call came in at 5:26 p.m. Dispatchers initially reported the suspicious vehicle was a package.

Deputies said they responded to Reedy River Baptist Church at 871 N Hwy 25 Bypass in Greenville for a suspicious vehicle. According to them, special teams were called in to investigate because of suspicious circumstances, including writing on the vehicle.

Deputies said the writing referred to law enforcement and narcotics were found inside the vehicle. A suspicious-looking object was also in plain view, deputies said.

A Hazardous Device unit rendered the vehicle safe. Deputies said no charges will be filed.

In an abundance of caution, deputies said the roadway between Hwy 276 and Roe Ford Road was shut down to traffic until the investigation was complete.
