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.
