San Diego Harbor Police kept the SanPark airport parking facility on Pacific Highway shut down for approximately two hours Wednesday afternoon in response to a suspicious package placed in a vehicle.

Around noon, a SanPark worker witnessed someone placing a plastic bag on the seat of a pickup owned by Ace Parking. He told police that he thought he saw wires protruding from a cylindrical object inside the bag.

Police then called the city’s Metro Arson Strike Team, who in turn called San Diego Fire-Rescue’s Bomb Squad. The Bomb Squad used a robot to open the package and discovered it contained an ammunition magazine for a .22 caliber rifle.

The lot was reopened around 2 p.m. when the area was deemed safe. An investigation as to who left the package and why is ongoing.
