JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office bomb squad unit was sent to the Town Center, on the Southside, in reference to a suspicious item, according to Jacksonville Fire & Rescue.

JFRD and JSO had multiple units standing by during the investigation.

Police say a backpack with other bags is what triggered the response.

Dillard's parking lot was closed off while JSO investigated.

The bags were determined not to be a threat and all operations have since returned to normal at the St. Johns Town Center.
