One of the bomb squad's robots was brought in to take the suitcase to an outside courtyard after it was X-rayed. Once the bag was taken out, a K-9 inspected it before a bomb squad technician in a full protective suit could go through it.

Police said nothing suspicious was found in the bag and no other suspicious items were found in the church.
