Antioch police investigate suspicious package on Friday

By Lieutenant Tammany Brooks, Antioch Police Community Policing Bureau

On Friday, June 21, 2013 at 2:27 p.m., Antioch Police responded to a report of a suspicious package on a bus stop bench in the 4000 block of Lone Tree Way. Officers located a medium-sized packaging envelope that appeared to be full. Markings on the envelope caused officers to be concerned with its unknown contents. As a precautionary measure, Lone Tree Way was blocked off from James Donlon Blvd. to Bluerock Drive in both directions, and nearby residents were encouraged to remain indoors for about 1 ½ hours.

Members of the Walnut Creek Bomb Squad responded to the scene and determined the envelope was safe and there was never any public hazard. The roadway was reopened and the affected residents were notified.
