TRAVIS COUNTY -- The Travis County Sheriff's Office investigated a large bag left near a lamp post as a suspicious package Wednesday morning.

The bag was seen by a person who walks by the intersection of Wells Port Drive and Grand Avenue Parkway every day. The person thought the bag was suspicious and called police around 9:55 a.m.

The intersection was closed for a short time while authorities investigated.

Just after noon Wednesday, Travis County Sheriff's spokesperson Roger Wade told KVUE News the package had been cleared and was not an explosive device.

Wade says he wants citizens to remain vigilant and call 911 if they see something suspicious. He says he would rather find an empty bag than have something explode.
