A package delivered to a building hosting the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper and a Kamala Harris branch office has been deemed “harmless” by authorities.
The package sparked an evacuation Wednesday.
Suspicious packages reported outside a building that houses the San Diego Union-Tribune were found to be harmless, authorities said Wednesday morning.
Several floors of the building on 600 B Street, which houses the newspaper, WeWork offices and a branch of Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’ office, briefly evacuated and a hazardous materials team was called to investigate the area of 6th and B Streets, said Lt. Kevin Wadhams.
Police were called to the building at about 8:15 a.m., when a bystander saw the stack of packages on a table and flagged down a lieutenant, he said. Officials closed 6th Avenue between A and B Streets.The five boxes contained a mix of items, including a shoe, two children’s books, a football, an empty bag of chips and a hat, Wadhams said.
They were not addressed to anyone, and after reviewing video surveillance footage, Wadhams said an unknown person dropped off the boxes at about 1:45 a.m.
Union-Tribune immigration reporter Kate Morrissey described the boxes as priority mail packages positioned near an orange pump.
The Secret Service reported Wednesday that it intercepted potential explosive devicesaddressed to Hillary Clinton and President Obama, and CNN reported a third device sent to its Manhattan bureau, prompting an evacuation.

The package allegedly delivered to CNN Wednesday has come under particular scrutiny, amid a wave of alleged pipe bombs sent to Democrats. Hillary Clinton spoke Wednesday.
CNN officials reported Wednesday that the package that arrived at CNN’s office was “delivered by courier, not mailed.”
This report came amid wide social media scrutiny of the photograph of the package, which CNN’s Jim Acosta shared. The package was not postmarked. (READ: Package Was Not Postmarked).
But if the package was delivered by courier, why did it have multiple stamps on it? Who was the courier? Who paid for the courier?

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
