Federal Courthouse in Pocatello Evacuated Tuesday
(POCATELLO, ID) – The federal courthouse in Pocatello was evacuated Tuesday after a suspicious package was found in the building’s mail room. Police say the package turned out to be harmless, after they discovered it was only a magazine with an electrical music insert. They say the item was similar to musical birthday cards and was merely an advertisement. Investigators say 30 to 40 people were evacuated, and that the potential threat to the community was large enough to justify the actions taken.
