A suspicious shopping bag found at the University Avenue Caltrain station was destroyed by the county bomb squad Tuesday night (Aug. 16), Caltrain spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said.
A taxi driver reported the shopping bag at about 8 p.m., which was left at the southern edge of the southbound platform, Bartholomew said. The Santa Clara County bomb squad X-rayed the bag but could not determine its contents.
Shortly before midnight, a water cannon was used to render the device inoperable, Bartholomew said. Caltrain service was delayed 15 minutes.
No further investigation is planned and police did not specify the nature of the bag's contents.
