A suspicious package was left outside the county building in the 100-block of North Clark Street Wednesday.

Authorities cordoned off the area and traffic was re-routed.

Investigators say a black box wrapped with a red ribbon was placed in the lap of a figure etched into the east side of the building. The package was determined not to be dangerous and the all-clear was given.

It's not known what was in the package.
