UPDATE: Multiple Suspicious packages found in Birmingham

Posted: Updated:

Birmingham authorities are now asking for the public's help in questioning a woman about three suspicious packages found in downtown Monday.
 
There were three packages found at separate locations within 24 hours.  The discoveries closed down roads for several hours.

The first incident occurred after an envelope was found Sunday at the BBVA Compass Building. Another envelope was found Monday morning at the Massey Building on 4th Avenue North between Richard Arrington Boulevard and 20th Street. Another package was found shortly after at the Servis1st Bank.

Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams says all the packages contained non-hazardous material and a photo and name of Vera Quarles. Quarles is believed to be in her mid-40's and a transient in the area. Police say Quarles is not a suspect at this time, however they would like to ask her questions.

Earlier Monday, Birmingham police were also called to a suspicious object at the Jefferson County Jail. That call ended up being a false alarm.
