Muni officials reported the package at 8:48 a.m., Officer Boaz Mariles said.

A bomb squad was at the scene investigating as of 9:45 a.m., says Bay City News. Appeal staffer Tim Ehhalt arrived on the scene at 10:22, just as the bomb squad “bus” was pulling away — he says the single cop there who had been directing traffic was getting ready to take off, too. Guess the OS will live to see another day!
