Partial evacuation at Offutt AFB after suspicious package found at gate

A suspicious package was found in a commercial vehicle around 11:45 this morning at the Capehart Road Gate at Offutt Air Force Base.

The commercial vehicle was going through a routine check in the search pit prior to entering the base when a K-9 military working dog alerted personnel to the package.

People within facilities near the gate have been evacuated as a precautionary measure and an explosive ordnance disposal unit from the Omaha Police Department is at the scene.
