Police say a suspicious package found in downtown Oklahoma City Monday morning is not a threat.

A security guard found a suitcase sitting next to a mailbox at 55 N. Robinson Avenue around 8:30 a.m.

Officers closed the Sheraton parking garage and a small radius around the suitcase as the bomb squad determined the suitcase was nothing more than a suitcase.

Around 300 workers at the Robinson Plaza building were evacuated as a precaution. That building houses OSHA, VA, IRS and other private businesses on 6th floor. Those workers have been given the "all clear" to return to the building.
