A suspicious looking suitcase someone left Monday in front of LSU’s Middleton Library in the quadrangle was empty.

LSU police issued an all clear around 1: 30 p.m. after investigating the suitcase, said LSU Police Capt. Cory Lalonde.

Someone called LSU police around 11 a.m. Monday to report that a suitcase had been left in front of Middleton Library for an extended period of time, Lalonde said.

He said LSU police called for the Baton Rouge Police Department’s bomb squad as a precaution.

The area was blocked off from the public while authorities investigated, Lalonde said.
