San Francisco police got a scare on Thursday evening when a woman brought a package to the department’s Northern Station that was found to have a suspicious powder inside.
At about 6 p.m., the woman brought the package to the station, located at the corner of Turk and Fillmore streets in the city’s Western Addition neighborhood.
The woman said she had received the package the day before, and an officer at the station examining the package found the suspicious powder, according to police.
The package was taken outside and taped off while firefighters responded. The powder was eventually deemed harmless and was taken away by the city’s Department of Public Health, police said.
Paramedics examined the woman and the officer for precautionary reasons, but neither were injured.
