Juneau police temporarily closed the Federal Building and 9th Street Monday evening, due to a suspicious package.
JPD received a 911 call about the package at 4:16 and sent an explosives team to the scene. The building and street were closed for nearly three hours while law enforcement officials investigated.
Just before 7 p.m. JPD issued a press release saying “the package was found to have nothing dangerous inside.”
