Suspicious Package Sent to Vikings Winter Park Training Facility

The package contained an unknown substance that does not appear to be hazardous.

Police are investigating a suspicious package that was sent to the Minnesota Vikings Winter Park training facility earlier this month, an Eden Prairie spokeswoman announced Tuesday.

Eden Prairie Police and Fire Departments went to the facility at 10:58 a.m. Jan. 8 to investigate the parcel, Katie Beal said via e-mail. Since it contained an unknown substance, a chemical assessment team was called to help with the investigation.

Preliminary tests determined the material was not hazardous, although final test results are still pending.

Investigators are not releasing further details at this time.

Patch is attempting to contact the Vikings for comment and will update this story when more information becomes available.
