ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — Police in Zionsville are seeking the public’s help in identifying a person of interest in relation to a suspicious package.

Shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday, officials say they received a report of a suspicious package from the Zionsville Presbyterian Church near the intersection of 116th Street and North Michigan Road.

The Indiana State Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team was called to the scene and deemed the package safe. They opened the package to find a glass jar containing an unknown liquid. In the liquid was a cell phone wrapped in newspaper. Authorities believe the package may have been a hoax.
