The Richland Police Department bomb squad was called to the mail handling facility for the Hanford nuclear reservation Monday morning.
A Hanford Patrol police dog unit was conducting a routine check of the mail center at 1932 Butler Loop in Richland when the trained dog alerted at a cabinet holding multiple packages, according to a message sent to Hanford employees.
The mail center was evacuated, and the Richland explosive ordnance disposal team was called at 9:15 a.m.
The bomb squad found nothing out of the ordinary and no additional action was needed, said Richland police Capt. Mike Cobb.
