Roads reopen after suspicious package closed part of C-470

The sheriff's office said the package was determined not to be a threat.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) investigated a suspicious package at the underpass of C-470 and Belleview on Christmas Eve. 

JCSO said C-470 between Quincy and Bowles, the westbound lanes of Belleview from Eldridge, and the eastbound lanes from the roundabout just west of C-470 were closed as the bomb squad responded to the incident. 

Jenny Fulton with JCSO told 9NEWS that someone called the police after they witnessed someone pull off the underpass of C-470 and Belleview and got out of their car and left a package. That person then got in their car, did a U-turn, and fled the area, the sheriff's office said. 

Fulton said out of precaution, the sheriff's office shut down the area of C-470 and Belleview to investigate the package. 

Almost an hour after the bomb squad responded to the incident, the sheriff's office said the package was determined not to be a threat.

C-470 has reopened but deputies said Belleview will remain closed at C-470. JCSO did not say how long the road would be closed.
