ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — Central Avenue remains closed downtown after a package received at Sen. Tom Udall's office prompted a scare and police and fire response.
The situation has been resolved, according to a Udall staffer, although police and fire units remain on the scene in the 200 block of Central Avenue SW.
Apparently the package arrived with a stain on it that raised suspicions about it's contents, the staffer said.
The incident began about 3:15 p.m.
At 4 p.m. an Albuquerque Police Department spokesperson said no hazardous materials had been found and that Central was expected to reopen shortly.
KRQE News 13 will update this report as more information becomes available.
