SAN ANTONIO -

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office gave the all-clear late Tuesday morning following an investigation into a suspicious package inside a parking garage near the Bexar County Courthouse.

Bomb-sniffing dogs were called in after a deputy found the package around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday while on a routine patrol.

The package was found on the first floor, on top of a self-pay station.

"When you see anything like that, you want to be especially cautious. The first floor of the garage is where our district and county judges and other elected officials and key staff in the courthouse park, and so they just exercise caution and it worked out well," said Laura Jesse, public information officer for Bexar County.

The dogs didn't pick up on anything and Jesse said the package appeared to be food.

"It's been crazy. There's cars everywhere, people everywhere, none of the courts are going to start on time," said 144th Criminal District Court Judge Angus McGinty.

The garage reopened by 9 a.m. and the intersection of South Flores and Nueva was reopened to traffic.

"I'm glad that they took it seriously. You can't be too cautious. But we have a fantastic police department and sheriff's (office and) they cleared it as quickly as they did," said McGinty.
