A bomb squad rushed to downtown Bristol to inspect a suspicious package Friday afternoon.
Bristol, Virginia police got a report of a suspicious package outside of Tri-Summit Bank.
As a precaution, Lee Street was blocked off.
Police tell us a bomb squad, along with a K-9 officer trained in bomb detection came in to inspect the package.
"The bomb dog did not show any interest towards the bag, at that time the bomb squad did a sweep of the bag and it turned out to be just a personal bag and belongings," said Officer Willie Simpson with Bristol Virginia Police.
