Police arrived at the scene and cleared the area and neutralised the object, using a controlled explosion.

The suspicious object turned out to be a box with death threats against the young car owner written on it.

Evidence was collected from the scene and is expected to be send for scientific examination.

The young man said he had no suspects in mind.
