Suspicious box forces evacuation in Window Rock

WINDOW ROCK, AZ (AP) -

About 300 people were evacuated from a Window Rock building Wednesday as authorities checked out a suspicious package that turned out to be computer hardware.

The building houses staff from the tribal prosecutor's office, the district court, the police department and inmates held on misdemeanor charges.

Corrections Lt. Ophelia Begay says the inmates that included 12 men and three women were transported to a detention center in Chinle. She says women have since returned.

Zah says the package that was the size of a shoebox had been wrapped in duct tape. It did not have any address labels.

He says a second package at another location quickly was determined to be non-explosive.

Federal, state, county and tribal officials helped secure the area and investigate the packages.
