WINTER PARK, Fla. -

A bomb squad was called to a Winter Park bank on Monday morning because of two suspicious packages, which ended up being clothes in a bag.

The packages were located Monday morning near the Bank of America at 750 S. Orlando Ave. and a nearby Taco Bell.

As a precaution, bank customers were initially forced to remain inside the bank, but they were later allowed to leave.

Northbound lanes of Orlando Avenue, also known as U.S. 17-92, were closed at Fairbanks Avenue because of the situation.

Video from the scene showed police tape around the nearby Chick-fil-A and Taco Bell, too.

Winter Park police said the packages ended up being clothes in a bag.
