METRO is investigating the discovery of a suspicious package at the Memorial light rail platform on Fannin.

Officials say some copper wiring was wrapped in a shirt, but they determined it wasn't dangerous. It was found late last night after a customer called dispatch.

METRO says the wiring was more than likely stolen.

Authorities are now trying to figure out whether the package was accidentally left behind, or put there on purpose to scare people. METRO says there are no suspects at this time.
