A suspicious package found outside of the Orpheum Theater forced police to close portions of North Henry Street for over an hour Friday night.
“As a precaution, we shut down vehicular and pedestrian traffic to make sure it didn’t pose any kind of threat to the public,” said Stg. Meg Hamilton, who was on the scene.
By roughly 10:15 p.m. the Dane County bomb squad had determined that the contents of the package were benign, and police began opening the street back up to traffic.
There is not believed to be any threat to the public at this time, police said.
