A bomb squad detonated a suspicious package as a precaution

Yuba City, CA - The Butte County bomb squad detonated the package at about 4 p.m., about four hours after the small metal ammunition case was found on the north end of the parking lot, behind the Hometown Buffet on Colusa Avenue.

A portion of the parking lot was roped off and motorists were diverted around the suspected danger zone, but no businesses were interrupted, police said. Members of the bomb squad task force X-rayed the package, but were unable to determine the contents. Officers then cleared a larger portion of the parking lot before the package was detonated.
