Under the Dome

Suspicious package that cleared Administration Building tests negative

The suspicious package in Gov. Pat McCrory's office that caused the Administration Building to be evacuated Thursday turned out to be a false alarm.

The package was tested for toxicity and results came back negative, said Kim Genardo, the governor's spokeswoman

“Fortunately it was a false alarm,” she said. “But you can never too be vigilant.”

A member of the governor's staff opened a package late Thursday and became concerned about it's contents, contacting emergency personnel. The building was evacuated for about 35 minutes, while a hazmet team removed the package.
