The Wichita Bomb Squad has removed a suspicious package found near Downtown today.
Police were called to investigate a backpack left at the Kansas Masonic Home at 401 S. Seneca.
"The green backpack contained several differerent types of containers of flammable liquids. The containers were tied together with some type of electrical cord. We have no idea who left it there," Sgt. Steve Hiser of the Wichita Police Department said.
The call to 911 was made by one of the people who works for the Masonic Home. They opened it and saw what was inside and it looked like a possible incendiary device. "We called the explosive unit and they took it apart and rendered it safe," Hiser said.
