ORANGE – The police station was closed for more than an hour Tuesday while the hazardous-materials team inspected a package that turned out to be harmless, officials said.
A postal office employee noticed a piece of equipment in the bed of her pickup when she left work in the 3700 block of East Chapman Avenue around 8:45 p.m. and drove to the police station, about four miles away, to report the object, officials said.
The police station was locked down for about 70 minutes while the Anaheim Search & Rescue hazmat team inspected the object. It was identified as a hydraulic pump and inside was a mixture of oil and water.
It is unknown who placed the pump in the truck.
