Customer arrested after fumes reported

March 19, 2003

An unidentified man was being held late yesterday at the county Detention Center after he was detained in a Forest Hill grocery store because a manager called the sheriff's office to report a suspicious customer.

About 9 a.m., an employee of Klein's in the 2100 block of Rockspring Road said he noticed fumes from a man carrying a backpack, said spokeswoman Ginger Rigney. The state fire marshal's office bomb squad searched the backpack and found powdered drink mix.

The man was charged with hindering a police investigation because he would not disclose his identity.
