DALLAS -- Police say a "suspicious package" found near an abortion clinic in North Dallas Friday morning was a hoax meant to scare people.The package was found by a pro-life group who was outside the clinic praying."It was about two feet tall wrapped in black plastic and had string around it to make it look like a little doll,” said Susan Platt, who found the device.DPD's bomb squad sent in a robot to pick the package up and rip it apart to see what was inside. Hazmat was also called to the scene. It was ultimately determined not to be chemical or explosive. “It was an alarming thing to see and it was specifically designed to insight fear,” said First Asst. Chief David Pughes, with the Dallas Police Department.The call about the package came Friday morning near the Southwestern Womens Surgery Center in the 8600 block of Greenville Avenue.
