CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Reports of a suspicious package Tuesday morning prompted evacuations and road closures in uptown Charlotte. The package ended up being a Journey cassette tape, police said.
The 911 call came in at 6:12 a.m. from the Duke Energy Building located at 400 South Tryon Street.
According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, employees located a small package which they thought looked odd and wanted police to check out.
"To be clear, this is a suspicious package call and not a bomb threat," police said.
