The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that police evacuated a building in downtown Richmond this morning after a suspicious package was delivered there addressed to Sen. Jim Webb. According to the Times-Dispatch, the package arrived at a building two blocks away from Webb's own Richmond office.

Police would not say what made them call the package suspicious but said it did not appear to be a threat at the scene. It was removed from the area and is being analyzed, they said. Will Jenkins, a Webb spokesman, said the matter is being handled by law enforcement and his office has no information.

The package, addressed to Webb, was wrapped in plain brown paper and emitted a buzzing noise. The return address was Phyllis's Pleasure Palace.
