Suspicious package delivered to North Precinct

 On August 10th at approximately 12:30 p.m. a suspicious package was delivered to the North Precinct, via a US Postal Service Mail Carrier.  The package was a legal size, white padded envelope.  The envelope did not have a return address and was stamped “Special delivery from Santa” with 8 postage stamps affixed across the top.

The North Precinct Duty Officer intercepted the package and immediately notified SPD communications and North Precinct Commanders.  Out of an abundance of caution, the precinct was evacuated and surrounding streets cordoned off.  Arson/Bomb Squad detectives responded to the scene.  The package was x-rayed and deemed harmless.  The North Precinct re-opened for routine business.

This remains an active an on-going Arson/Bomb Squad investigation.
