Suspicious package empties Toyota

ERLANGER, Ky. (AP) - Hundreds of employees at a northern Kentucky Toyota engineering facility were evacuated after officials were called in to investigate a suspicious package delivered to the mailroom.

A spokeswoman for Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America says the Friday incident lasted about two and a half hours and the package was determined to be harmless.

Nan Banks says between 900 and 1,000 people work at what is known as TEMA in Erlanger. She says employees were allowed to go home but many stayed and returned to work once they were allowed back inside the building.

Joe Carrico, a supervisor in the FBI's Covington office, said FBI agents were called to the scene along with local law enforcememt agencies.
