Senator's Texas office receives suspicious package

FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (AP) - Police say a suspicious package delivered to Sen. John Cornyn's suburban Dallas office triggered an evacuation of the top two floors of the large building where the office is located.

The package was delivered Wednesday morning to Cornyn's 11th floor office in Farmers Branch.

Deputy Police Chief Mark Young says officers evacuated the building's 10th and 11th floors while Texas Department of Public Safety bomb experts examined the contents of the 14-inch-long tan box.

Young says they determined that the tapes and films inside posed no threat but were taken to a nearby vacant lot and blown up as a precaution.

Young says no arrests have been made and an investigation continues.
