OKLAHOMA CITY – Police and fire crews have given the all clear for a  “suspicious package” after a resident drove to the police station to hand over a thermos discovered in their backyard.

Oklahoma City police say shortly before 1 p.m., someone found a thermos filled with foil in their backyard.

The resident then drove to the Oklahoma City Police Station, near the area of S.E. 89th St. and Santa Fe, to hand over the item to officers.

Officers say the resident felt it was suspicious so they immediately took it outside to begin investigating what was inside.

EMSA crews were also called to the scene as a precaution.

Authorities were able to determine that it was safe just minutes later and gave the “all clear.”

Officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department say the thermos was stuffed with a burrito wrapped in foil.
