A suspicious package at Planned Parenthood led authorities to call the Humboldt County Bomb Squad Monday, but further investigation revealed no explosives, just four pounds of marijuana.

According to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, an employee at the Planned Parenthood Office on Timber Falls Court in Eureka found a delivery from the U.S. postal service odd and called the sheriff's office.

The office had received a package originally sent to an address in Georgia, which was undeliverable. The Postal Service then sent it back to the sender, which was the address for the Planned Parenthood on Timber Falls Court Eureka. The packaged was addressed to a J. Black, however there is nobody by that name at the Eureka Planned Parenhood.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit was called to the scene and after assessing the package they determined that it contained four pounds of marijuana.
