If you see a book that does not look just right, report it immediately.
The Monterey County Bomb Squad responded to a house in New Monterey Thursday night on reports of a suspicious envelope being delivered to the residence.
Law enforcement was notified around 7 p.m. and responded to the home on Parcel Street off Prescott Avenue. The bomb squad arrived on scene by 8 p.m., and used a portable X-ray machine and robot to examine the package.
Just before 9:20 p.m., the bomb squad confirmed the envelope contained nothing dangerous. In fact, the envelope contained two children’s books.
