Suspicious Package Found in IMS Parking Lot


A suspicious package found near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon turned out to be a false alarm.

Authorities says an IMS Security official found a cooler with smoke coming out of it at the Coke Lot around 2:30pm.

Metro police and the bomb squad responded and determined the cooler contained fireworks.

The incident closed the Coke lot for several hours resulting in traffic jams around the track.
