Suspicious package near Cowboys Stadium turns out to be trash

Cowboys Bomb squad

We passed along a report this morning about a suspicious package near Cowboys Stadium.

Thankfully, it turned out to be a false alarm.  The package that was in a sewer turned out to be trash.

Security officers saw someone in a car throw the bag down a manhole cover, and closed part of the street to investigate.   (The picture to right is an officer looking down said manhole cover.)  It turns out someone just couldn’t wait for garbage pickup day.

(I can identify, but don’t sympathize.   Snowstorms have messed up my trash pickup all winter/week, but you don’t see me throwing bags down manhole covers.)

    you mean it turned out to be a bunch of meaningless government propaganda like it always does? just stay afraid america, so when they open the FEMA concentration camps, nobody questions it because we all need to be safe

    If it was N.Y. the guy would be busted for feeding the alligators. Speaking of N.Y., police there are analyzing a surveillance video which shows a slightly built young man with a couple of trash bags struggling mightily to life a manhole cover. He finally gives up and trudges away with the trash bags in hand.

    Efan

    Way to be the first moron to post on this one!

    Upon hearing the news, Jerry Jones immediately billed the cops $200 apiece for being in the vicinity of Cowboys Stadium.

    if you mean “trash”… it must have been last seasons Cowboys game plans.

  10. radrntn says: Jan 28, 2011 2:41 PM

    i think as a society we are all becoming a bit to paranoid, while at the same time, what’s up with the slob throwing crap down the sewer. I guess he never heard of a garbage can.

  11. berniemadoffsides says: Jan 28, 2011 2:42 PM

    FYI, the “trash” was Favre’s retirement papers. Goodell made sure to file them accordingly.

  12. dabears2485 says: Jan 28, 2011 2:46 PM

    Isn’t it nice to live in a day and age where someone tossing some trash out of their car isn’t just a $500 littering fine but national news?

  13. sdboltaction says: Jan 28, 2011 2:47 PM

    We don’t see you doing it, Gregg… doesn’t mean you don’t…

  14. lhaveprettyfeet says: Jan 28, 2011 2:49 PM

    As was most of the football played inside Cowboys Stadium this season.

  15. cityofchampyinz says: Jan 28, 2011 2:49 PM

    Well, it IS his stadium…..

  16. badkarma56 says: Jan 28, 2011 2:50 PM

    Who else thinks it was just the stuff Wade Phillips left @ cowboy stadium?????

  17. geniusesq says: Jan 28, 2011 2:52 PM

    The whole team can fit in a bag??

  18. wallacejay says: Jan 28, 2011 2:53 PM

    Of course it was suspicious. Normally the trash is on the field.

  19. truesob1 says: Jan 28, 2011 2:53 PM

    Hmmmm, muyst’ve been Green Bay’s game plan.

  20. jamesneuf says: Jan 28, 2011 2:54 PM

    Headline should have read “Suspicious package near Cowboys Stadium, Cowboys 2010 season turns out to be trash”

  21. atlien698 says: Jan 28, 2011 2:59 PM

    It was later reported that the contents of the garbage bag included:

    – 3 copies of Wade Phillips’ resume
    – logistics for Cowboys Super Bowl parade
    – game film of Cowboys game at Green Bay this season

  22. bigdad10359 says: Jan 28, 2011 3:01 PM

    Arlington police traced the plates on the car to a Pennsylvania owner, one Andrew Reed of Philadelphia who is in town to once again to WATCH a Super Bowl. Upon analyising the discarded bag, it appears it contained nothing more than the Eagles season.

  23. qbcoach9 says: Jan 28, 2011 3:12 PM

    On Box – “From Jerrys Room”
    Contents – Roy Williams expectations

    Dont throw out the trash Jerry, just pay it less and keep hoarding

    –Go Birds!

  24. therealjimmysmith says: Jan 28, 2011 3:13 PM

    I understand the obvious resemblance, but referring to a fat, drunken, cheese-covered Packers fan as “just trash,” is still a little insensitive.

  25. giablommi says: Jan 28, 2011 3:17 PM

    File this one under the “Fear and paranoia driven media hoax” category.

  26. deweyaxewound says: Jan 28, 2011 3:22 PM

    I’ve always wondered whatever became of “PFT the Magazine”…

  27. efangule says: Jan 28, 2011 3:25 PM

    @chapnastier

    Jealous much?

  28. hobartbaker says: Jan 28, 2011 3:27 PM

    Suspicious Stadium found near abandoned garbage bag turns out to be trash.

  29. dempsey63 says: Jan 28, 2011 3:33 PM

    When I think of Dallas, what comes to mind is the most compelling and horrific 29 seconds of footage in the history of filmdom (the short trailer for “Debbie Does Dallas”) and the assassination of President Abraham Zapruder.

  32. packmanfan says: Jan 28, 2011 3:35 PM

    To save on expenses to make sure he doesn’t need to spend more money that he needs to, this is how Jerry Jones gets rid of his garbage.

  33. dempsey63 says: Jan 28, 2011 3:43 PM

    The word “crap” is classy? Who knew?

    Of course it was trash!! What else are you going to find near a dumpster that rest in a state that is a landfill?

  36. discosucs2005 says: Jan 28, 2011 3:59 PM

    Darth Goodell beat me to the Jerry Jones joke. Well played.

  37. orfskins says: Jan 28, 2011 4:00 PM

    Haha. dude, gov’t propoganda? stay afraid? All this was was someone reporting something they saw as suspicious. Happens all the time. sign of the times.

  39. jordiway90 says: Jan 28, 2011 4:41 PM

    That bag had Romo’s shoulder and the Cowboys season in it as well.

  40. rooneyruleblues says: Jan 28, 2011 4:45 PM

    It was just a bag filled with Jay Cutler jerseys.

  41. closisgood says: Jan 28, 2011 5:21 PM

    Everyone hates on Dallas. Of course, the fastest growing metropolitan in the United States, what a terrible place.
    Wonder how such a horrid area would appeal to everyone from the East coast and Cali.

    Ok instead of stay classy i will say keep acting like idiots and keep making stupid pointless coments about every topic “ON HERE”. It really gets old maybe not to everyone but to me it is. Out of every 10 comments there might b 2 or 3 good ones that actually make a valid point..

  43. heyooooh says: Jan 28, 2011 6:07 PM

    Michael Irvin just dumping his stash before his car is searched when entering Cowboys Stadium.

  44. bigbluefan1 says: Jan 28, 2011 6:12 PM

    Dallas has some of the best looking women in the country and some of the biggest redneck men

    The bag had the tickets that Jerry was giving his team for the Super Bowl

    And Tony Romo’s greatest plays video

    Suspicious trash found near Cowboys Stadium turns out to be Jerry Jones’ old face.

  49. dbellina says: Jan 28, 2011 7:10 PM

    It was a bag filled with all the leftover plastic from one of Jerry Jones’s face lifts/tucks.

  50. simplesimon1 says: Jan 28, 2011 7:20 PM

    LOL….Silly Americans… Twisted by the media to be afraid of everything….How sad

    When are cooler heads finally going to prevail….. Also, how in the world is this news?

  51. richm2256 says: Jan 28, 2011 7:22 PM

    Cowboys Stadium = Landfill

    Jerrah spends a billion dollars, and people mistake it for a dump.

    Gotta love that.
