SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CBS13) –  Streets have been reopened and a lockdown at the Sacramento Main Jail lifted after police determined a car that had been parked outside the jail did not contain explosives.

The bomb scare began at  around 11 a.m. when a woman parked her car in front of the jail at 651 I Street.  She left the car, and when she returned found a suspicious package inside.  She then alerted jail officials.

The jail was put on lockdown and streets in the area were blocked off as the bomb squad investigated.
