    At least one bag appeared to be filled with clothing.

    Police confirmed the scene was clear and began re-opening the street around 9:45 a.m. 

    FBI Special Agent in Charge Harold Shaw said there are no known credible threats against the city this weekend.

    "Vigilance is the key, our ability to surge and push resources as needed based on what the threat is," he said.

    "We will have people working throughout the holidays," Shaw added. 

    Shaw says his agents have been meeting with partners on the federal, state, and local levels ever since the terrorist attack in Germany. 

    "We just don't necessarily know where the threat is going to come from, so the public serves a critical role," Shaw said.
