The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office closed Swift Road in Sarasota near Grand Cayman Street on the afternoon of July 14 while inves- tigating suspicious objects found in the road just before 1 p.m., the office reported. The Hazardous Devices Unit responded to the scene and found a ceramic bowl containing a chicken head and feathers next to a cylin- drical object inside a paper bag, the office reported. When an x-ray could not determine the contents of the bag other than a gel-like substance, the object was destroyed on the scene, a news release adds. Following a 20-minute waiting period, a bomb technician approached the item and then cleared the scene, the release adds. A member of the Hazardous Devices Unit deals with the object found on Swift Road on July 14.
