Police ID Suspicious Item Found Near Santa Fe Capitol

The Santa Fe Police Department says a suspicious item found at a parking lot near the Capitol was not dangerous. Police apparently were told of the item in a parking lot near Paseo De Peralta and Acequia Madre around 2:30 yesterday afternoon. The area was closed before investigators determined it was an unattended fire extinguisher. All roads were eventually reopened. Also, there were no Inauguration Day protests at the Roundhouse despite various law enforcement precautions.
