Suspicious package at Embarcadero station

A suspicious business envelope, standard overnight envelope size from on the street police information I could obtain, was found at the Embarcadero MUNI station late morning. By 11:45 a.m. the San Francisco police department had closed Market Street for two blocks from Main Street to Fremont Street as well as half a block to a full block for side streets. Not much known right now, but a lot of office workers are heading out for lunch to find Market Street cordoned off by police tape. Update: Bay City News reports a “white cylindrical container with black end caps, was found on the sidewalk at 333 Market St.” which is a different story than I was told by two SFPD officers around noon.

    Was this suspicious package incident you wrote about something that you observed today? There doesn’t seem to be anything about it in the news (SFGATE, etc) I know someone else who was trying to take Muni at that station today. The link you have in the story to the Bay City News Reports looks like it’s a 2004 story.

    Thanks!
