Tuesday afternoon, the College of William and Mary post office took a suspicious package, it had no return address, to the College’s Police Department as a precaution.

Campus police then took the package to the William and Mary Parking Deck, the nearest safe location, after clearing the building of bystanders.

According to College Spokesman Brian Whitson, campus police then called in a Naval Weapons unit from the nearby Naval Station, and the unit safely disrupted the package. The package’s contents posed no danger to campus.

The parking garage was closed for nearly an hour.

“These were all precautionary measures,” Whitson said.
