Greeley Hotel Evacuated Over Suspicious Package

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – A hotel was evacuated and several streets blocked off in downtown Greeley after a suspicious package was found.

Police say that an employee at the Clarion Hotel on Eighth Street found the package around dawn Saturday on the north side of the hotel near the trash bins.

The Denver Post reports he called police and said the package had attachments that made it look like a bomb.

The bomb squad responded and used a special robot to inspect the package.

Police determined it was harmless and had probably been placed there as a hoax.
