BROOKFIELD (WITI) — Brookfield police were called to a business near 124th and Townsend on Tuesday afternoon, May 28th to deal with what appeared to be a suspicious package.

The call came after officials say a disgruntled employee, a woman, dropped off a package at the business and claimed it had a dangerous substance inside.

Police and fire officials examined the contents of the package and do not believe it is hazardous.

About six people at the business left on their own accord as a precaution. The rest of the businesses nearby were not evacuated.

The woman who allegedly dropped off the package was taken into custody and is being questioned.
