INDIAN WELLS, Calif. - Part of the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Hotel was evacuated early Sunday morning after hotel staff found a suspicious package.
It was found in the front lobby near the entrance. The item was partially visible and had wires.

Riverside County Sheriff's Hazardous Device Team was called in to examine the item.

Riverside County Sheriff's Department says hotel services were minimally disturbed during the investigation.
