VENICE, Fla. – The South Jetty Park in Venice has been given the all clear after being closed down due to what police initially said was a suspicious package.

Venice Police say a small package attached to a garbage can was reported just before 5pm Monday.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's bomb squad was called in as a precautionary measure.

Investigators say the package was a GPS receiver that is used for the recreational activity known as geocaching.
