Addison office building evacuated due to suspicious package

A five story office building in Addison, located at 15301 Spectrum Drive, has been evacuated while police and fire crews investigate a suspicious package.

According to an official, an employee reporting for work found a “crudely wrapped package with no return address” outside of a door at the building, possibly left sometime over the weekend.

The employee peeled back the wrapping and noticed a possible pipe of some sort and other items which raised suspicion. Subsequently, the Addison PD was called.

Addison PD and FD have evacuated the building. Dallas PD’s Bomb Squad along with Dallas Fire Rescue’s HazMat teams have been called to handle the suspicious package. An x-ray machine has been sent into the building to examine the package.

More details when available.

*Update – All clear given. The package was reportedly some type of refrigerator filter. The building is now reopened.
