Several classrooms at a Woodland elementary school were evacuated Tuesday while authorities investigated a suspicious box that turned out to contain a harmless stack of papers.
Woodland police Cpl. Dave Krause said the unattended box was discovered at about 8:15 a.m. outside a classroom at Prairie Elementary School, 1444 Stetson St. School staff called police, which summoned the Yolo County Bomb Squad to the campus.
Bomb technicians X-rayed the box and, after determining that it contained papers, deemed it not to be a threat. The scene was cleared shortly thereafter.
