California UPS facility evacuated

SAN BERNARDINO, Ca. (AP) – Police say a Southern California UPS facility has been evacuated Friday because a driver noticed a package addressed to the home of the husband and wife behind this week’s deadly attacks.

San Bernardino police Chief Jarrod Burguan said it appeared the package was from a “reputable vendor” but the facility was cleared out and a bomb squad was been called out of caution.  The evacuation lasted about three hours.

Burguan said the UPS driver had left the facility Friday night and returned after noticing the address in nearby Redlands.

The driver then turned around to return it to the distribution facility.

Police say the package was held in isolation and out of an abundance of caution, bomb technicians were deployed to inspect it.

The UPS facility is about a mile from the social services center where 14 people were killed on Wednesday.
