Evesham Township Police Department in Burlington County is reporting that a suspicious package was found in the Municipal Building today, prompting an evacuation.

The discovery and evacuation also forced the closure of New Road near the municipal complex.

Morning court scheduled was cancelled.  The 11:00 court session was tentatively still open, no word on whether the cancellation was extended due to the investigation of the package.  Authorities are not saying what that package may contain to warrant concern.

At this time the entire municipal building is closed to everyone. We will bring you more on this developing story as details become available.
