Suspicious package outside Civic Center turns out to be false alarm

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A potentially suspicious package outside the Civic Center turned out to be a suitcase full of clothes.

Around 7 p.m. Friday police say a person called 911 saying there was a suitcase in an odd position outside of the main entrance to the building.

Officers closed the area off to look into it, but later learned the suitcase wasn't hazardous.

Only men's clothes and personal hygiene items were inside.
