MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — All employees of the Planned Parenthood building in Uptown have returned to work after a brief evacuation.
According to Minneapolis Police Sgt. Catherine Michal, the Minneapolis Fire Department was initially dispatched to the location — 1200 Lagoon Avenue — at 12:09 p.m. on the report of a substance found in an envelope.
A representative of Planned Parenthood says a suspicious letter arrived earlier Tuesday and normal security protocol was followed, which includes calling the police.
Minneapolis police and fire crews responded and no harmful substances were found in the package, so everyone was allowed back into the building.
The evacuation lasted 10 minutes.
