SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police have cleared a suspicious package that shut down Main Street from 400 South to 300 South for several hours Tuesday morning.
Police say a medium-sized suitcase was found next to a planter box across the street from the federal courthouse.
The bomb squad was called in and used a robot to shoot the suitcase with what they call a disruptor before it was closely examined around 7 a.m. Police say inside the suitcase was a video tape and a sandwich.
The street closure caused problems for TRAX riders that had to get off and walk or take buses to get around the road closure. TRAX trains are now running in the area.
