SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An employee of a midtown Sacramento business reported a suspicious package in a dumpster Tuesday, but police investigated and determined it wasn’t an explosive.

The package was found at 24th and K Street shortly before 5 p.m. Police set up a perimeter around the area. A bomb squad robot was sent in after the item at about 6:30 p.m. and the area was eventually cleared.

Traffic around 25th and K was shut down. Some precautionary evacuations and sheltering were also put in place while police investigated.
