Police Identify Suspicious Package Found In Medical Building

CREATED Aug. 8, 2013

OMAHA - Police say a suspicious package found near an Omaha medical building Wednesday came from a business burglary. 

Thursday the Omaha Police Department announced a briefcase found at Ear Specialists of Omaha near 92nd and Dodge had been taken from a doctor's office.
 
Officers rushed to the area just before 4:00 pm after someone reported suspicious activity.
 
Authorities say someone spray painted security cameras and left behind a briefcase.
 
Police thought the case could have been a bomb and evacuated the building and called in the bomb squad.
 
Bomb Technicians determined the briefcase wasn't explosive but had been taken from a business in the building.
 
A doctor's office door had been pried open and an old computer and monitor had been taken.
 
Authorities have not made any arrests so far.
