Pittsburgh police closed off Liberty and Penn avenues near 10th Street, Downtown, for less than an hour Monday afternoon to check a suspicious package.

The streets were closed in the area of the Westin Hotel about 2:30 p.m., according to Allegheny County 911 dispatchers, who sent bomb technicians to inspect the package.

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the package turned out to be a bag of loose wires, and police were called off at about 3:10 p.m.
