After the package was reported to police an emergency evacuation plan was put into motion.

A bomb-sniffing dog was brought to the scene to inspect the box and did not alert police of a bomb. The box was then opened and nothing was found inside.

"We just had some concern,” said County Commissioner Brad Anderson. “In today's climate you just can't take a chance."

Anderson and the rest of the Commissioners credit law enforcement with a quick response. Although this situation still scared some employees, to say the least.
