A bomb squad investigates a suspicious package at the Bank Of America near the Avenues Mall.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Life at the Bank of America office complex off Southside Boulevard and at the bank's Learning Academy returned to normal Tuesday morning after the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office bomb squad investigated suspicious packages found in a car.

Police said a security officer reported finding a car with an out-of-state license plate with the keys in the ignition and several unmarked black containers packages in the back seat about 3 a.m. The bomb squad investigated the contents of the containers, finding they did not contain anything explosive and posed no threat.

Jill Johnson with Duval County Public Schools told Channel 4 that the incident was not directly linked to the school, but that the day care and school were closed until about 7 a.m., when police cleared the scene.
