MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami police were called out to investigate a suspicious package found near the courthouse complex that houses the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.

The item was found near the Kristi House Child Advocacy Center, across the street from the district attorney’s office.

As a safety precaution, they temporarily closed NW 12th Avenue between NW 11th and NW 14th street. The exit ramp from State Road 836 was also closed to traffic.

The police department’s bomb squad checked it out and deemed it safe. Just before 10 a.m. all roads were reopened.
