LINCOLN–(KFOR May 31)–Traffic along “O” Street in downtown Lincoln was tied up for a short period of time on Thursday evening, as police and LFR were responding to a suspicious package call. It happened in the area of 12th and “O” Street.

Lincoln Police Captain Duane Winkler tells KFOR News this happened in front of a business acting as a mail exchange service.

“One of the employees reported receiving a package that smelled odd,” Winkler said.  “Upon unwrapping it, found some bottles with chemical substances in them.”

Captain Winkler says it was determined by LFR that the items were a series of precursor chemicals and got them secure. No one was hurt and there is no ongoing threat to the public.
