Board of Aldermen seeks answers after suspicious packages found outside City Hall

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( – During Thursday's Board of Aldermen meeting, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson is expected to be questioned about the suspicious packages that shut down parts of downtown for hours last month.

On April 21, numerous emergency personnel responded to City Hall after two suspicious items were found outside.

During the incident, and shortly after, authorities said there were numerous security cameras that would have seen whoever left the devices outside. None of the images have been released by police to help find the person responsible for the crime.

One of the people who works for Lewis Reed, the President of the Board of Aldermen, told News 4 that aldermen will be pushing for an update on the situation from Chief Dotson at Thursday's meeting.

The board's website states that Chief Dotson will be giving updates about crime in the area. Chief Dotson's appearance at the meeting comes after a series of double homicides, triple shootings and the month of April being the deadliest in the City of St. Louis.

News 4 will have a crew at the meeting, which is scheduled to last from 10 a.m. to noon.
