A busy Owensboro street is back open tonight after authorities had to shut it down to investigate a suspicious briefcase found at a motel.

The whole ordeal started around lunchtime at the Colonel House Motel on Triplett Street. Someone reported the briefcase in one of the rooms. While the bomb squad rolled in to check it out, first responders had to re-route traffic.

Police still aren't saying what was inside the briefcase, but they do say it wasn't a bomb. Once they safely removed it, people staying at the motel were let back inside.
