Police say a suspicious package that prompted the evacuation of hundreds of workers at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building in St. Albans Thursday was a musical greeting card.

Mailroom employees found the package this morning and deemed it suspicious after it was x-rayed. Officials say the package appeared to be wire-like.

About 800 employees were evacuated, as well as a nearby day care.

The Burlington Free Press reports that a bomb squad robot was sent into the building to inspect the package. Police said normal operations resumed around 2 p.m.
