Menomonee Falls company receives suspicious package, police investigate
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Menomonee Falls Police say the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit was called in to help with a suspicious package Wednesday afternoon.
According to investigators, around 2:00 p.m. a company received a package that was concerning because of its appearance, lack of postal markings, and unusual labeling. The package was brought to the police department and later the EOD unit was called in for help.
The EOD determined the package was not a danger.
During the investigation, the parking lot of the police department was roped off for about two hours to keep the public safe. Village Hall, the library, and a nearby school where classes were just ending were asked to limit their activities to the sides of their buildings away from the parking lot.
The MFPD says they encourage suspicious packages to be reported to the police, but it is best for packages to be left in place for police to investigate.
