TOWSON, Md. (AP) -- The Towson Library has reopened after being closed earlier in the day because of a bag that officials considered suspicious.

Baltimore County police were contacted around 11:15 a.m. Saturday by a caller who reported seeing two men leave a black bag under a bench.

Police evacuated the library and several nearby businesses and closed a section of York Road while they investigated.

Police say the bag contained only clothes, and the men who left it there told officers that it was intended for the homeless.
