SARASOTA, Fla. -- Swift Road is open again after a bomb squad was called out to destroy an unknown object found in the road Monday.
Around 1pm Monday, the Sarasota County Hazardous Devices Unit was called to Swift Road near Grand Cayman Street (just north of Proctor Road) after a ceramic bowl containing a chicken head and feathers next to a cylindrical object inside of a paper bag was found in the road.

The objects were destroyed after the contents of the bag could not be determined, other than the fact that it was a "gel-like" substance.
A bomb technician cleared the scene after a 20-minute waiting period, and the road was then reopened.
