BROOKLYN - 4 Metrotech Center in Downtown Brooklyn was evacuated after reports of a suspicious package earlier today.
New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said that the NYPD removed a package from a UPS truck in Brooklyn, tested it for possible explosives and found it not to be dangerous. The package was an envelope that came from Yemen, appeared to contain bank receipts, and was addressed to the JP Morgan Chase bank in Brooklyn, Kelly said. The package arrived on a plane that landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport, he said.
MetroTech Center lies between Flatbush Avenue and Jay Street. It houses several business and organizations in the building.
