ALL CLEAR: Investigators stand near the car after an item noticed underneath it was determined to not be a threat. Brian Chilson

The Little Rock Police Department briefly closed Kavanaugh Boulevard near the Hillcrest Kroger this afternoon after a report of a suspicious item under a car driven by a police officer.

A post to the Little Rock Police Department Twitter account just after noon said that a suspicious package had been noticed under an unmarked police car in the 2800 block of Kavanaugh. The street was eventually closed between Palm and Beechwood as a precaution while the package was investigated, with LRPD giving the all-clear just after 1 p.m.
