The bomb squad was called out Thursday morning after police say an unknown person placed a suspicious package on the front porch of a house in Grayslake.

The Grayslake Police Department and Grayslake Fire Department responded around 8 a.m. Thursday to the 300 block of Sommerset Drive in Grayslake for a report of a suspicious package.

The resident reported an unknown person placed a package on their front porch around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The incident was captured on a doorbell camera, police officials said.

The package was not a commercially sent parcel.

The Waukegan Bomb Squad was called to the scene to inspect the contents of the package using specialized equipment.

There was no evidence of danger to the public and the request for the bomb squad was “out of an abundance of caution,” police officials said.

The Grayslake Police Department sent an alert asking residents to avoid the area of Sommerset Drive and Wicks Street during the incident.

“The contents found are not a public safety issue. This incident is pending further investigation,” the department said in a statement.
