TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The discovery of a suspicious package shut down Interstate 75 and Interstate 280 at the interchange in North Toledo for three hours Monday April 21. Toledo police detectives say they are considering two scenarios.

Sergeant Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department says they are looking at whether the object was thrown out of a car window or whether it fell off a car traveling on the interstate.

Forensic testing is being performed on the small package. Toledo police say they are working with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

"We have some detectives that are investigating. We are currently running some tests, forensic tests, on the item to see if we can get any evidence from the piece itself that can lead us back to somebody," said Heffernan.

Heffernan says the testing will also determine if the object was an explosive.

It is undetermined when the testing will be completed.
