Suspicions about a package found at Jacksonville International Airport's Fed Ex cargo terminal Thursday were unfounded and it was returned to the company after a bomb squad inspection.

No flights or other operations at the airport were disrupted apart from the closing of the cargo facility and surrounding businesses on Pecan Park Road in the southeast part of the airport property.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office bomb squad was called to the terminal in the morning after airport police were contacted by Fed Ex, said Jacksonville Aviation Authority spokesman Michael Stewart. He said two bomb squad technicians inspected the package before it was determined to be harmless.

No details about the size of the package or what raised suspicions were released by police or the airport.
