*Update to suspicious package A Tampa Police K-9 alerted on an unattended package at Santiago Street West and Dale Mabry Highway. The Regional Bomb Team has arrived on scene to assess the situation.
 
Tampa, FL April 23, 2013 -

All of the lanes are open on Dale Mabry.
A woman riding her bike this morning noticed an unattended package under a mailbox at Dale Mabry and Santiago Street West. Forty-five minutes later, she noticed that the package was still there and she called 911. An officer arrived at the scene and noticed that there was no return address and it was addressed to the Tampa Bay Times. There was also no postage on the package. A Tampa Police K-9 alerted on the package and the Regional Bomb Team was dispatched to the scene. The Bomb Team determined that the package was filled with garbage. Bomb Team officers are working to determine what odor the dog alerted on. An odor by itself can be harmless, but if it is combined with other chemicals it could be considered harmful.
