SPRINGFIELD -- UPDATE @ 5:50 p.m.: A phone call to a shipping agent in the investigation of a suspicious package at the Love's Travel Stop revealed it contained a temperature sensor and was not a danger, Springfield police Capt. Brad Moos said.

He said the routing and destination of the packages led police to believe they were suspicious. Moos did not elaborate on that comment.

The Dayton Bomb Squad, called by police, X-rayed the packages. While that was occurring, police spoke with the shipping agent by phone, the captain said.

The all-clear has been given and business at the travel stop has returned to normal.
