Around 8 p.m. on Saturday May 6, 2017, SCMPD responded to a report of a suspicious package on the top floor of the State Street parking garage.

"Officers located a suspicious package with a cell phone and wires on top of it on the top floor of the parking garage. As a precaution the garage was evacuated and neighboring streets were shut down," police reported Sunday.

The SCMPD Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team was contacted and responded to the scene. "EOD rendered the package safe and determined that the package was not a bomb," police say.

"The package may have been a film prop from a movie that had filmed in the area," police report.
