Post office evacuated in Orange Park

Published On: Aug 24 2013 05:09:55 PM EDT

The Orange Park Post Office reopened Saturday after a bomb squad was called in to investigate a suspicious package left in front of the building.

Investigators said it was around 10 a.m. Saturday when a passerby spotted an oddly wrapped package near the front door of the post office.

A bomb squad was called in and closed off Kingsley Avenue, after the post office was evacuated.

After about an hour, officials determined the package was not a threat, and the post office was reopened.
