Approximately 40 people, mostly from the Garden level and Equinox health club, were evacuated Wednesday afternoon. The upper agency floors were not evacuated, leaving employees with the impression the situation wasn’t that dangerous or a serious threat.
“The situation was assessed and the threat level was found to be low,” a law enforcement official told Deadline. The evacuation lasted about 45 minutes. Officially the BHPD said that: “Officers responded to a suspicious package. The investigation cleared it of being suspicious. It was just an envelope. Nothing harmful.”
It still hasn’t been determined the contents of the package that raised concerns.
A suspect in the mailings, Cesar Sayoc Jr of Florida, was arrested October 26.
