FALCON — The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) and Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) responded to reports of a package containing a powder that has been confirmed to be cocaine at the CSPD Falcon substation on Wednesday morning.

The CSFD Hazmat Team was investigating the situation Wednesday morning.

As of 1:30 p.m., the Colorado Springs Police Department has confirmed that the situation is over and streets should be reopened within the hour of this update.

The substance has been confirmed to be cocaine, according to CSPD, and has been turned over to the narcotics department of CSPD.
