NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 07: (L-R) 2017 Inductees Gregg Rolie, Steve Perry, Neal Schon, Ross Valory and Jonathan Cain of Journey speak onstage at the 32nd Annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center on April 7, 2017 in New York City. Debuting on HBO Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 8:00 pm ET/PT

If only more situations like these had such weird, but whimsical, endings.

Per CBS affiliate WNCN in Charlotte, N.C., a small manila envelope with a handwritten address and an out-of-state return address was found outside of the Duke Energy building early Tuesday morning (October 30.)  Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called by building employees around 6:15 AM regarding the package. Police and bomb squad officers reported to the building and evacuated all inside.

Fortunately, the contents of the package were not dangerous and were determined by authorities to be a cassette tape.  In fact, WNCN went on to clarify just what kind of tape it was via Twitter updates on this story.

No word yet on how it was determined the cassette tape featured the music of Journey, but we sincerely hope there was a working tape deck on the scene that led to this discovery.
