Asked if the bomb-handling robot would be employed, Shoemaker said: “That’s generally what we do in cases like this.” An Arsons and Explosives unit examined the package and at 7:53 p.m. determined no explosive device was found, according to a tweet posted to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Twitter account.
