Suspicious package at state building was safe, officials said

Posted April 19, 2013

— A suspicious package found Thursday at the North Carolina Department of Administration contained no dangerous substances, officials said Friday.

Tests on the package came back negative for toxins, a spokeswoman for Gov. Pat McCrory said. She did not say what the package contained.

A member of McCrory’s staff noticed the package on the first floor of the building, at 116 W. Jones St. in downtown Raleigh, and reported it. A hazmat crew arrived about 5 p.m. to remove it.

The building was briefly evacuated.
