A police bomb squad was called in to investigate a “suspicious package” delivered to the doorstep of a Houston, Texas pro-life group on Friday.

The Bellaire police department received a call about a “suspicious package” dropped at Texas Right to Life’s office in Houston and escalated the concern to the bomb squad, which sent agents to the scene, Fox 4 News reported. All personnel were evacuated from the office building.

The threat was determined to be a false alarm after authorities’ x-rayed the package and found no contents that could pose any danger. The local police department will continue to probe the situation, and officials noted to Fox 4 News that making a bomb threat qualifies as a “terroristic threat,” a criminal offense which can earn a sentence of up to a $4,000 fine and nearly a year in jail.

“Texas Right to Life did the right thing in contacting the police. It was fortunate that our officers were on scene when the suspicious package was delivered and we appreciate the occupants of the building working with police to quickly clear out in the event that this was an actual bomb,” the Bellaire police wrote in a press release.
