City Paper is not for tourists
A tipster tells City Desk a building at 1 Thomas Circle has been evacuated on account of a bomb scare. No word from MPD yet. Updates as available.
Update: Cops say an Explosive Ordinance Disposal crew is on the scene because of a report of a suspicious package. There are “no results yet.”
Update, 12:51 p.m.: Building staffers, who had gathered in front of a nearby CVS during the incident, have returned to work as the bomb squad has cleared the scene. Security personnel were grumbling about this being the location’s second evacuation in the past four months.
