MARION (KWWL) -

The Linn County/Marion Bomb Squad was called to the train car in City Square Park Friday morning after a suspicious package was reported.

Chief Harry Daugherty says someone reported the suspicious package at around 8:05 a.m.

Daugherty says the bomb squad was called in after officers decided to secure the area until the item could be neutralized.

The bomb squad removed the item after determining it was not a danger to the public.

Officer Chad Nott says the item turned out to be an empty, hard-sided case that was accidentally left there.
