WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A building housing the Honorary Consulate of Belize was evacuated early Monday morning after a suspicious package was found.

The incident took place at 1135 Military Cutoff Road around 8 a.m. Monday after a package with suspicious writing was found on it.

The building is mostly made up of medical offices, including an urgent care, dentist and radiologist.  The first floor has been cleared.  The second floor, which houses the consulate, was checked.

Officials with the Wilmington Police Department's bomb squad searched the building. They took the suspicious package into custody and were able to assess what was inside the package.

"It was determined at that time that it was all writing - a series of papers with suspicious writing on them, but no device was found inside the package," explained Detective Kevin Smith.

Now, officials are trying to determine how the package got in the building and who may have been behind its delivery.
