A time capsule was found during demolition of the former Roanoke County Police Department building which used to be Southview Elementary School.

Crews have been carefully taking down the building since the bricks will be reused to construct the new building for the Virginia Forensic Department's Western Laboratory.

Crews found a box inside a 1939 stone. In it there was a Bible, an old newspaper with a mention of Southview Elementary School, and five nickels.

The director of the Western Regional Laboratory, Kevin Patrick, says some of the contents inside the time capsule have gotten moldy over the years but what can be salvaged will be put on display once the new building is constructed in about two years.
