CHAMPAIGN -- The bomb squad was called to a UI campus Thursday afternoon to investigate a suspicious package. Police say a woman was trying to mail a letter outside the education building when she noticed a box, wrapped in duct tape, stuffed on top.

Investigators closed off the street and brought in a robot to get the package out of the mailbox. After x-raying it, investigators found there wasn't anything explosive inside, just small personal items.
