The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas - Loyd Brumfield

The area around the Coppell Po­lice Depart­ment was evac­u­ated Mon­day while au­thor­i­ties in­ves­ti­gated a mys­te­ri­ous pack­age that alarmed a res­i­dent.

The pack­age, which even­tu­ally was ruled harm­less, had been de­liv­ered to a home and ap­peared to come from out­side the U.S., po­lice said.

The Irv­ing Po­lice Depart­ment’s bomb squad as­sisted in deal­ing with the pack­age, which had no sus­pi­cious con­tents, po­lice said.

The in­ci­dent comes on the heels of a se­ries of pack­age ex­plo­sions in Austin that killed a teenager and in­jured a woman.
