Greyhound station evacuated in Denver

DENVER, Colorado – A bus station across the street from the federal courthouse where a Colorado terror suspect appeared Thursday was evacuated because of a suspicious package.

An employee in the Greyhound station’s mailroom found the package at about 8 a.m., said Michael Timlin, district manager for Greyhound. Police cleared the station by 8:30 and closed four city blocks to traffic. About three dozen passengers were waiting outside a Ritz Carlton hotel for a new bus.

Timlin said station employees were aware of federal court proceedings across the street for Najibullah Zazi, indicted on Thursday on conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

“It’s probably coincidence, but it’s better safe than sorry,” Timlin said.
