MIRAMAR, Fla. – A suspicious red bag and black suitcase were found on the side of a road Thursday afternoon in Miramar, but authorities said no explosives were found.

Sky 10 was above Southwest 145th Avenue near the FBI headquarters as the Broward Sheriff's Office bomb squad was called to the scene.

The area just south of Pembroke Road was block off as authorities inspected the items.

A bomb squad robot inspected the items, and detectives were seen sifting through the bags, going through what appeared to be clothes.

All roads in the area have since been reopened.
