UPDATE: Police investigate suspicious package downtown

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Part of a busy downtown Richmond road was closed for awhile earlier today after a report of a suspicious package.

What appeared to be a duffel bag was found on some scaffolding along East Main. The road between Eight and Ninth was closed for a couple of hours.

The bag was safely retrieved, and the road reopened just after two.

It turned out the only thing inside the bag was some clothes.
