JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The 'suspicious package' that evacuated residents from a San Marco condominium Sunday evening turned out to be an adult sex toy, JSO confirms. 

According to detectives, a man living on La Baron Avenue called officers when he received a package with the return address of someone he had been involved in a lawsuit with.

Fearing for safety, the man called police and officers evacuated the condo building and surrounding buildings out of an abundance of safety following recent incidents in Austin, Texas.

The police report states the bomb squad seized a dildo from the package addressed to the Le Baron condominiums.

Evacuated residents were shortly after allowed to return home.
