PHOTOS and VIDEO UPDATE: Suspicious package in Twin Lakes turns out to be harmless

The package was discovered near the door of the bank.

The package (by cone placed by police) was discovered near the door of the bank.

A suspicious package discovered outside a Twin Lakes bank this morning turned out to be harmless.

The package was reported around  11 a.m. Twin Lakes Police and the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department responded. A robot was used to examine the package, which was determined to contain personal papers and religious artifacts, said Twin Lakes Police Chief Dale Racer.

The bank, in the 500 block of Lake Avenue, was evacuated while the package was evaluated by police. Customers in a neighboring hardware store were held inside that building  as well until the scene was clear.

Here’s some video of the robot in action.

Here are some more photos from the scene.
