MISSOULA – At about 10:26 a.m. Tuesday the Missoula Police Department received a report of a suspicious package at a business off of Grant Creek Rd.

After first responders arrived, they decided to treat the package with caution due to the nature of the complaint and the package’s appearance.

One business in the area was evacuated of their own accord and hazmat responders are figuring out how to dispose of the package.

MPD says that the need for an investigation into the the package will be determined by what law enforcement believes the intention of the package to be.

“It depends on what findings if any are determined from this package. There may or may not be a crime involved and that has yet to be seen,” said MPD Sergeant Travis Welsh.
