— The Kenosha County Ordnance Disposal Team detonated a package found at W8183 Elkhorn Road about 4:37 p.m. Sunday, said Patrol Division Commander Scott McClory of the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department.

New homeowner John Nora found the suspicious package on his property, said Undersheriff Kurt Picknell. Nora was concerned and telephoned the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department.


After investigating the package, deputies called the Kenosha team, which removed it to a safe location, McClory said.


The sheriff’s department isn’t speculating exactly what was in the package or how it got on Nora’s property, McClory said.


The incident still is under investigation and no other information was available Tuesday morning, McClory said.
