Suspicious package at Salvation Army center rendered safe 

A suspicious package has been rendered safe after causing the evacuation of a Salvation Army donation center in San Francisco’s Mission district for a couple of hours today, police said.

The package was reported at 11:08 a.m. at the donation center located at 1500 Valencia St.

Employees at the center found a suspicious-looking package mixed in with some items that had been donated, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said.

The employees were evacuated and the Police Department’s bomb squad was called in to investigate the package, Andraychak said.

He said the package was rendered safe as of 1:15 p.m.

The police response caused the closure of streets near the intersection of Valencia and 26th streets, but all streets have since reopened, Andraychak said.
