The 12oo block of West Broadway, between Birch and Alder St., has been reopened after Vancouver Police located a “suspicious package” Wednesday evening.
Sgt. Brian Montague says the item appeared to be a pressure cooker, but was deemed not dangerous by the VPD Explosives Disposal Unit after examination and an x-ray of the item.
The cooker was determined to be empty and posed no risk to the public.
The area has been reopened to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
Police are now trying to find out who left the item there, and why.
