Pair of shoes prompts train station evacuation

- Police and bomb sniffing dogs responded to a report of a suspicious package at the NJ Transit Ridgewood train station Thursday morning. The station was briefly evacuated.   NJ Transit says one of its police officers spotted a pair of shoes with what appeared to be a wire under them beneath a bench at 8:45 a.m. 

Officials determined the shoes did not pose a threat and service resumed with delays after 10 a.m.  The station serves the Main/Bergen and Port Jervis lines to New York City.

Residual delays continued.
