Update: East Parking deck reopened

Penn State Police have examined the suspicious package in the East Parking Deck and determined there are no hazardous materials present. The parking deck will reopen shortly.

Police responded earlier this morning (Oct. 14) to a report of a suspicious package in a vehicle in the parking deck on Penn State's University Park campus. Officers were on the scene shortly before 9:30 a.m., and closed the deck during their investigation. Penn State Police were assisted in the investigation by Pennsylvania State Police and Alpha Fire Co., which is a typical response level for this type of incident.
