The packages, consisting of a one-gallon bottle and two pill bottles that were filled with water and whose labels had been removed, were left at the public entrance to the police department around 8:45 p.m. Sunday, said OCFA Battalion Chief Mike Schroeder.
Firefighters and police sealed off the area, examined the bottles and discovered they contained water, Schroeder said.
“We’ll call it a drill. You can’t have enough training,” he said. The incident ended around 11:45 p.m. Sunday.
Police will complete a Suspicious Activity Report to be turned over to the Orange County Intelligence Assessment Center, which is overseen by the sheriff’s department, said Tustin police Sgt. Jon Cartwright.
Surveillance video shows a woman placed the bottles at the entrance, Cartwright said.
“There was nothing threatening, no known criminal activity. They were just suspicious bottles,” he said.
