JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police tape and patrol cars blocked the Federal Courthouse downtown Saturday morning as JSO's bomb squad investigated a suspicious package.

Police said an unidentified backpack was left in front of the courthouse. When they arrived, they reviewed security footage and spoke to security guards before performing a render safe procedure. The owner of the bag could not be located.  

JSO is continuing its investigation to determine if the bag contained hazardous material.

Police said the bag is no longer a threat to the public or courthouse.
