Orleans Criminal Court was evacuated for a short time Thursday after a deputy found a suspicious package inside the building and notified New Orleans police.

It was later determined that the package contained a liquid substance - likely vomit, Judicial Administrator Robert Kazik told our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.  

The incident began at about 2 p.m., when police were called to investigate a black bag with a note attached leaning against the main entrance doors of the building at Tulane and Broad. Inside the black bag was a 2-liter bottle containing a liquid. The bottle had been placed inside a red kitchen pot inside the bag, Kazik said.

The Fire Department took the liquid for testing and NOPD placed the bag and its contents at Central Evidence and Property, according to NOPD spokesman Officer Gary Flot. The building was reopened a short time later.
