The Austin Police Department bomb squad spent Tuesday evening investigating a suspicious package that was left at a donation drop box at a parking lot near I-35 and 11th Street.
As a precaution, APD shut down the roads in that area including I-35. The shutdown was brief.
The bomb squad used their remote-controlled robot to destroy it. The all clear was given shortly after. It's not clear yet what was inside the box that prompted the alert.
Neighbors in the area were also told to stay away from their windows during this event.
