ALERT: Police Evacuate UPS Facility in San Bernardino After Driver Discovers Package Addressed to ‘Suspect’ ResidencePosted: December 5, 2015
‘Isolating package to be safe’
Multiple police vehicles were seen shortly after 8:30 p.m. outside the UPS customer center in the 1400 block of East Victoria Avenue (map).
The evacuation was ordered out of an abundance of caution, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan.
“Package with delivery address to suspect res (sic) in Redlands,” Burguan said on Twitter. “Isolating package to be safe.”
Althought the item was from a “reputable vendor,” UPS officials called police “just to be safe” after noticing its delivery address, the police chief tweeted.
It was unclear if the item had been sent to a particular suspect, according to Burguan.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department bomb technicians were responding to the scene, police said.
In a statement, a UPS spokesman said the shipping company was “cooperating with law enforcement as they investigate an issue at our San Bernardino facility.”…(read more)
