After police were called to investigate a suspicious package left on a table in the Morgan Library Tuesday evening, bomb squad officials determined there was no threat a spokesperson said about half and hour after the incident occurred.
The library was evacuated at about 6:20 p.m. after the police were called about a package, “wrapped in a lot of tape,” left on a table on the third floor, said CSU Spokesperson Dell Rae Moellenberg.
The Fort Collins EOG, or what Moellenberg said was the equivalent of a bomb squad unit, examined the package. At this time, no additional information about the package, whether it’s an envelope or box, is available.
Moellenberg said the package was either promptly returned to the owner, a female CSU student, or would be at a later time.
The library was re-opened shortly after the incident ensued.
