On Tuesday a suspicious package was found outside of the Kansas State Capitol.  According to Capitol Police the package was found at 1:50 p.m. on the first floor of the north entrance.  In a phone interview with KSN News in Topeka Lt. Terry Golightley said the package was an Amazon-style envelope with an out-of-state shipping address.

Currently, no visitors are allowed in the building due to the coronavirus.  A part of the building was evacuated and the Topeka Police Department Bomb Unit was called in to investigate.  After an investigation the package was determined to contain papers and was deemed to be not a threat.
