TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is clearing the scene at a midtown hotel after a suspicious package investigation determined that an unattended suitcase did not contain explosives on Thursday, June 15.

According to police, the suitcase contained oily liquids and gloves. The Hazmat team removed the suitcase after blasting it with a water cannon and allowing bomb techs to inspect it.

Police say they were called to the scene when a security guard at the Viscount Hotel found the bag partially open in a back parking lot.

Responding officers checked it and decided to call in the bomb squad.

A robot was used to X-ray the suitcase, which discovered what looked like liquids inside.

During the investigation, police closed East 10th Street from Mountain View to Arcadia and Arcadia from 10th to Broadway Boulevard.
