TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Police have reopened an area in downtown Terre Haute after a suspicious package was reported.

It happened near 4th and Ohio Streets.

On Wednesday evening, the Terre Haute Police Department reported to News 10 a passerby said a suspicious package was possibly placed in a mailbox.

Terre Haute Police closed Ohio Street from 3rd to 4th Street while they waited for an Indiana State Police bomb squad to respond.

Around 9:00 p.m. the bomb squad arrived, and police expanded their perimeter.

Around 10:00, our crew witnessed what appeared to be a bomb squad robot brought in for the investigation.

A short time later, the police told us the area was clear and reopened the streets.

Indiana State Police said the package was 'deemed safe.'

We are working to learn more details. As soon as we do, we will pass them along to you.
