A Bridgeport health care clinic was briefly evacuated Thursday morning after a "suspicious" package was delivered, according to Bridgeport Police officials.

According to police, a call came into dispatch around 9:30 a.m. concerning a suspicious package that had been delivered by DHL to the Bridgeport Community Health Center, at 982 East Main, that was "suppose to contain a watch," but the caller felt that the package was too large, police said.

Bridgeport police called the State Bomb Squad who deemed the facility and area safe to occupy after examing the package.

All of the blocked streets have been cleared and occupants were allowed back into the building.
