An Orlando street was closed for two hours today after locals complained of a suspicious odor to police.
ORLANDO, FL (Catholic Online) - Responding quickly, sheriff's deputies closed the Apopka-Vineland Road in suburban Orlando while they investigated.
Searching near the Dr. Phillips neighborhood, police found what they were looking for - a suspicious box with a foul odor emanating from inside.
Taking precautions, police carefully opened the box to find a jar of vinegar.
Possibly embarrassed, but still taking no chances, the deputies disposed of the box and reopened the road after rerouting traffic for the two-hour long investigation.
