      Prank causes hotel evacuation

      The Marquette Police Department responded to the Ramada Inn on Thursday afternoon after staff noticed a suspicious looking package.

      According to police, the hotel was evacuated as a precaution after cleaning staff discovered a container in a room and contacted police. The container was found to be a prank played on a hotel guest by his fellow contractors.

      The man was already flying back home after being fired when the hotel staff discovered the container.

      Police deemed the package harmless.
