KINGSTON, OK--A suspicious box outside the Kingston, Oklahoma Masonic Lodge put many residents on a heightened alert, Saturday night.
Police officers first arrived to the Lodge around 7:30 PM, Saturday, after one of the members reported a strange box.
Lodge members were concerned because prior to the box's arrival, a threatening e-mail had been sent to the Masonic Lodge headquarters in Oklahoma City, pinpointing the Kingston building as a target for a potential violent attack.
Authorities say the email targeted several lodges across southern Oklahoma.
As the OHP bomb squad worked to open the suspicious box, they discovered it was just a case of bottled water with political advertising.
Crews cleared the scene around 2 AM, Sunday.
Investigators are looking into the source of that threatening e-mail, but say it appears the two events are unrelated.
