El Paso- An update on that bomb threat that closed down the Bridge of the Americas. It was all an apparent hoax. We're told an officer spotted the suspicious package in a car coming from Mexico around one this afternoon. That's when they called the El Paso police bomb squad in. The bridge was closed off until 5:40 this evening. Police say the item was not dangerous, but designed to look like a bomb. The driver, a 73-year-old juarez man, has been charged with making a hoax bomb.
