Suspicious Package Sent to Mission Bay Business Was Just a Bottle of Scotch

Posted By on Tue, Oct 7, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Police closed down part of Mission Bay this morning while bomb squads investigated a "suspicious package" that turned out to be a yummy bottle of Scotch sent to a Dignity Health executive, SF Weekly has learned. 

Officer Albie Esparza says that at about 10:50 a.m., the company received a package addressed to them. "When they opened it there were suspicious contents inside the package," Esparza says.

It appears the package was wet and leaky, which is what caused the panic at the office. 

The employees contacted the cops who are currently at the scene with a bomb squad and the San Francisco HazMat team. Traffic was detoured from Berry Street between Third and Fourth streets.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
