Columbus Police: ‘There are currently no street closures anywhere’

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — In a now-deleted tweet, Columbus police said inbound traffic into the city of Columbus had been temporarily halted Monday morning. Since then, they have tweeted that “there are currently no street closures anywhere.”

In the initial tweet, police asked that people have work and/or personal ID on-hand in vehicles.

Deputy Chief Tim Becker tweeted that the original message was due to a miscommunication and was corrected as soon as the error was discovered.

NBC4’s multiple attempts to reach Columbus Police for clarification have gone unanswered.
