Unattended Package/Train Delay

El Cerrito del Norte - 1607-0520

Officers located an ice chest (cooler) placed near the entrance to the police substation. No threats had been received. Because no explosive detection K-9s were on duty at the time, a request went out to our allied agencies. The UC Berkeley PD had a K-9 available, but because the cooler had been placed at the entrance to the police office, they determined that it should be checked out by their bomb squad. The item was x-rayed and determined to most likely not contain explosives. It was eventually examined by one of their specialists and found to contain water and miscellaneous items (including some wire). Trains were held briefly while the item was x-rayed and again later when it was opened. TSOC was notified of the incident (TSA-07-19380-16).
