Suspicious package prompts evacuation of tribal headquarters

A suspicious package prompted the evacuation of the Turtle Mountain Tribe’s administration building in Belcourt.

Tribal Chairman Jamie Azure tells KMOT-TV that a package was delivered to the facility Tuesday afternoon with a name that matched threatening emails previously sent to the tribe.

Tribal leaders told everyone to leave the building about 4 p.m. and called in bomb squad investigators. The package was later deemed harmless.  The Associated Press
