Staff at an Apple facility in Elk Grove were worried a package delivered Tuesday night might have been a bomb, but it turned out to be something far less dangerous, authorities say.
Elk Grove Police Department spokesman Officer Chris Trim said officers responded to the Laguna Boulevard facility around 9:45 p.m., after a suspicious package arrived.
"The package had writing on it that led the staff to believe that it might be an explosive device," Trim said in an email. "Apple security evacuated buildings A and B."
Police secured the area, and the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department bomb squad was notified. After arriving, the bomb squad x-rayed the box and realized it contained an iPad.
It was opened and the x-ray was found to be correct.
