CEDARVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A suspicious package that led to a bomb squad investigation at Ohio's Cedarville University turned out to be full of chocolates, authorities say.

University spokesman John Davis said local authorities, including the Dayton Police bomb squad, were called to the school Monday after a staff member discovered a package in the Dixon Ministry Center that bore no label except for gibberish writing, the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News reported Tuesday.

Davis said a group of students came forward after a campus-wide e-mail was sent out about the package and told officials the box of chocolates was hidden in the building as part of a game.

The spokesman said the investigation has been turned over to local authorities.
