A package deemed “suspicious” because of red and blue wires seen protruding from it caused momentary concern for local sheriff’s deputies Thursday afternoon.
About 4 p.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to reports of a suspicious package left near some bushes at a house on Garza Drive in Saugus.
Within 10 minutes of having arrived at the scene, deputies determined the package was not a threat.
“It was nothing,” Sgt. Brian Hudson told The Signal shortly before 5 p.m.
