The Regina Police Service evacuated its lobby after a geocache container was dropped off on Tuesday.

A concerned citizen walked into the police headquarters at approximately 1:15 p.m. CST with a suspicious package found in a local park. 

As a precaution, the lobby was evacuated, the front doors were locked and a bomb disposal unit was brought in to inspect the package. 

It was determined the package was not a threat.

Geocaching is a treasure hunt of sorts that involves using a global positioning system to find hidden containers.

Police recommend if you find a package you feel is suspicious, do not touch it. Instead, call the authorities immediately and experts will be sent out to assess the situation.
