CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – A suspicious package outside the Midlothian offices of the Allen & Allen law firm was deemed not to be a threat.

The item was determined to not be a threat; it appeared to be some kind of electrical part or item.”

Police were called to the 6100 block of Harbourside Centre Loop to investigate. Both Virginia State Police and FBI bomb squads responded to the scene.
