The New Line Road area of Letterkenny has now re-opened after a suspicious package found outside Letterkenny Garda Station this morning (Thursday) was declared a hoax.
The station had been closed, along with the roadway, after the suspicious package was reported at the front of the building.
Defence force experts arrived at the scene and carried out a technical examination of the object.
Later in the afternoon it was declared an elaborate hoax, made to mimic the look of a viable explosive device.
Garda at the station are now appealing for witnesses to come forward with information on how the package got there.
They can be contacted on 074 9167100.
