Police closed off part of busy Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilmington after receiving reports of a suspicious package.

The road was shut down between North Union and North Dupont Streets for an hour beginning about 10:00 a.m. Monday.

Police were able to determine the suspicious package found on the sidewalk on the west side of the 1100 block of North Union Street was nothing more than a sandbag with wires sticking out of it.

Once the bomb squad determined that all was safe, the road was re-opened.
