SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A suspicious suitcase that shut down the 1100 block of Lincoln Avenue in San Jose this afternoon contained only a typewriter and does not pose a threat, according to police.
The suitcase has been collected by police, and the businesses and roadways in the area have been reopened, according to Officer Jose Garcia.
Police said that at about 12:48 p.m. they received reports that there was an unattended dark-colored Samsonite brand suitcase near a bench in the plaza of a shopping center at 1165 Lincoln Ave.
Neighboring businesses, including an outdoor farmers market, were evacuated for the investigation and the bomb squad was called in.
Garcia said the owner of the suitcase remains unknown, and police do not suspect any criminal activity or intent in the incident.
