No criminals at City Hall
For a few minutes Wednesday afternoon, it sounded like Cincinnati's crime problem had really hit home: police radio traffic reported a possible hold-up at City Hall, in the treasurer's office.
But, upon further investigation by Enquirer police reporter Quan Truong, it turned out to be a false alarm.
City police said they rushed out shortly after 3:30 p.m. But the two hold-up alarms that went off were confirmed as a technical issue. Police were still on scene to fix the false alarm.
By coincidence, city council was meeting at that time - albeit at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
