(KSL News) With all the holiday activities going on downtown Saturday night, it was not a good time to have a street shut down. But when Salt Lake police received a call about a suspicious package in front of a bank, they had to.

Just before 6 p.m., someone spotted a briefcase with wires in it near the main entrance of the Chase Bank at State Street and 200 South.

Police closed off the block and called the bomb squad. No explosives were found in the briefcase, though. It turned out to contain some electronic equipment probably left behind by a maintenance worker.
