Suspicious package was legitimate

Tuesday, May 21, 2002

A suspicious package found in front of the Storm Lake Planned Parenthood office on Tuesday was a legitimate package, according to the Storm Lake Police Department.

Shortly after noon on Tuesday, May 21, the police department was called to the Planned Parenthood office at 720 Erie St. for a report of a suspicious package. The area was blocked off as a safety measure and North School was put on lock down.

Police determined the package - an envelope containing a metal can - was indeed a legitimate package after locating the woman who left it there.
