Cox Arena evacuated

620 WTMJ reported that the Cox Arena in San Diego, the venue that will be hosting the Marquette game this afternoon, was evacuated. The only report I can find thus far is from ESPN, which is reporting that a bomb sniffing dog got a hit at a hot dog stand. Hopefully this will just turn out to be a hungry dog.

CBS is reporting that a "suspicious canister" was found.

Final Update
The mystery container held the following:
The contents of the package turned out to be non-food items related to the condiment stand – plastic eating utensils, napkins and Styrofoam cups, said Fire Department spokesman Maurice Luque.
All's well that ends well.
