Deputies set up a perimeter that included the evacuation of the businesses and closure of C Street. A bomb squad was called out and squad members determined the package posed no threat, Burke said.

No one was arrested in the connection with the suspicious package. Deputies asked anyone who knows about it to call the sheriff's Perris station at (951) 210-1000.
