KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

The Kansas City Police Department’s South Patrol was evacuated Wednesday evening due to a suspicious device. 

The suspicious package turned out to be nothing of concern. 

Police spokeswoman Kari Thompson said the station later reopened after authorities determined there was no threat.

She said the station was evacuated after a man walked into the station and told officers earlier that there was an unknown device with wires attached to his car, and he didn't know where the device came from.

Thompson says officers alerted the Bomb and Arson section as a precaution, but later determined the device wasn't an explosive.
