ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) determined suspicious packages that were found in the parking lot of the Arapahoe County District Court Monday morning were not a threat.

ACSO said it is investigating who left the packages at the district court located at 7325 S. Potomac St. in Centennial.

The ACSO bomb squad was called to the parking lot of the courthouse at about 11:46 a.m. to investigate the packages, according to Ginger Delgado with ACSO.

The parking lot of the courthouse was closed Monday afternoon as crews were on scene, but has since reopened, ACSO said.
