Suspicious package found in Detroit

(WXYZ) - The Wayne County Sheriff's Department and other agencies are investigating who dropped a suspicious package into a dumpster this afternoon.

Three people told investigators they saw man place what looked like a duffel bag into the dumpster near the Hannan House in midtown Detroit.

The building was evacuated and police searched the area off of Woodward near Warren for more clues.

We're told a K-9 discovered something was suspicious in the bag.

However, once the DPD bomb squad arrived on the scene it was quickly determined there was nothing threatening inside the duffel bag.

Police are not saying what was inside the bag, but say K-9 officers are trained not only to detect bombs but ingredients in them.
