Capitol police investigated a report of a suspicious bag inside a mailbox in downtown Raleigh Wednesday.

A bomb squad was called in to check out the bag next to a building at North Wilmington Street and East North Street.

A technician using a remote device detonated a charge he attached to the bag before removing it from the box.

It turned out there was nothing dangerous inside - just cosmetics and lotions.
