Melted candy bars prompt call center evacuation

September 11, 2014

BATESVILLE — Officials say two melted chocolate bars sent in the mail prompted an evacuation at a Batesville call center.

The Independence County Sheriff's Office says the two king-size Hershey bars were sent to the Access Arkansas call center with no return address. The Independence County Sheriff's Office says the center was evacuated Tuesday morning.

Police, fire and emergency management responded to the scene, as did a U.S. Postal Service inspector who later deemed the envelope safe.
