ASU PD: Suspicious package a 'school project'

TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

A suspicious package found on the Arizona State University campus Wednesday morning turned out to be nothing more than a school project inadvertently left behind.

Arizona State University and the Tempe police bomb squad were investigating the package when a student walked up and told them the package was his school project he left behind by mistake, said ASU Police Sgt. Daniel Macias.

The package was found by a passer-by about 9:20 a.m. next to a pay meter station in a parking lot at the southwest corner of Myrtle Avenue and University Drive, Macias said.

Macias said the student wasn't going to be charged.

ASU police called in the Tempe bomb squad to assist in the investigation, Macias said.
