UPDATE: Suspicious package reported in midtown proves harmless

Sacramento police say a suspicious package found at 24th and K streets proved to be a piece of plastic with duct tape on it.

The bomb squad was dispatched to the location about 4:46 p.m. after an employee of a business reported finding the package in a trash bin.

Some buildings in the immediate area were evacuated as a precaution. The area was determined to be safe about 7 p.m.

Although the package proved to be harmless, police spokeswoman Officer Michele Gigante said the department takes all such reports seriously and follows protocol for potentially dangerous devices.
