The Three Wise Men didn't have to label their gold, frankincense and myrrh, but in these days of terrorism fears, it's a good idea to label gifts - including those left at churches.
The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a suspicious package - a taped, unmarked cardboard box - at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Camino Tuesday, Sheriff's officials reported.
After a bomb squad robot was unable to identify the contents, a technician suited up and x-rayed the package, revealing that it contained books.
A specialized tool was used to open the box and confirm its contents.
"Donations are a way for all of us to help someone who may be less fortunate," according to a release on the incident from the Sheriff's Office. "When making a donation to charitable organizations please consider marking the exterior of the package appropriately so not to alarm the recipients and potentially activate emergency response."
