PHOENIX -- A man was taken into custody after a suspicious bag was found at the Phoenix Convention Center Monday afternoon.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from the building during the "Save the Dream" tour. The center was filled with homeowners trying to get help on their mortgage from bankers and lenders.

Phoenix police say a man handed a suspicious package to a security guard and said something disturbing.

Police took the man out of the building, questioned him and then released him.
