Bag left in downtown New Orleans is no danger

New Orleans Police cordoned off an area in the CBD after someone left an unattended bag in the 800 block of Common Street. 

A spokesman says they blocked streets around Common and Carondolet.

"Surrounding streets have been closed and traffic has been diverted," Officer Garry Flot explained.

They called in the SWAT team to examine the "unattended gym bag."

About 90 minutes later, Flot said, "No explosives found inside of gym bag."

All streets were reopened.
