HONOLULU (KHNL) - Several dozen people were evacuated from a Honolulu office building as police examined a suspicious package in the area.

Officers sealed off Mahukona Street off Kapiolani Boulevard as the bomb squad sent in its robot for a closer look. People on the bottom floors of the building were moved outside.

Police say the object was left in a planter and had electrical components to it.

About 2 1/2 hours later, they gave the all-clear after they determined it wasn't an explosive device.
