MORELAND HILLS, OH (WOIO) -

Orange High School students were scared, but thankfully nothing more this afternoon thanks to a suspicious package.

The package was found around 3:30 p.m. on one of the Orange School buses in between routes, according to Orange City Schools and Moreland Hills Police. All in attendance were taken back to the transportation garage as the bomb squad was called out to investigate.

Police used security camera footage to find the student with the package and contacted the student and school. They learned he was in a photography class and was working on a pinhole camera project.

Authorities checked the package with an X-ray and determined all was fine.

Two and a half hours after they got the 911 call, police cleared the scene and a long line of buses made their way back to the bus yard.

“We can't stress enough the safety and security of our students are a priority, and everything worked according to plan today,” said Lt. Todd Dietzel with Moreland Hills Police.

Orange High School alerted parents of the situation with a reverse-calling system.

Police say the safety protocols went as planned.
