Package forces Clearwater evacuations, closures

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -

A stretch of Cleveland Street was closed in Clearwater this morning due to a suspicious package.

According to a city spokesperson, a call came in at 9:45 a.m. regarding a package at 612 Cleveland Street, which is outside of the Station Square Park and Station Square Condos.

The package was described a "poorly wrapped" standard cardboard package. It was addressed to a location in Indiana with no return address.

Tampa Police Department's bomb squad arrived at 11 a.m. while surrounding businesses were evacuated and Cleveland Street shut down.

Less than an hour later, the bomb squad determined the package contained a TV antenna and the all-clear was given.
