(KSL News) Police now say a suspicious package that forced the evacuation of the Department of Motor Vehicles office in South Salt Lake contained a family photo album.

Just before 3:00 p.m. South Salt Lake police officers responded to the building at 2880 S. 380 West because of the package.

South Salt Lake Spokesperson, Gary Keller says the small package was found around 12:30 p.m. by security on a table near some vending machines.

The security guards waited to see if anyone would return to pick it, but no one ever did so they called police.

He says the DMV was immediately evacuated and will be closed the rest of the day and won't be open until next week.
