"So we decided to shelter in place rather than evacuate the building. That was the best decision that we could, we were advised of. So the bomb squad was activated, and they were able to check out the female's vehicle, and there was no type of device located," added Officer Contreras.

Police say the woman will be taken to a medical facility to have her mental status evaluated.

North Chaparral has been reopened to all motorists, according to police.
