Suspicious bottles found near Colorado Convention Center

DENVER — Several suspicious bottles that appeared to be Molotov cocktails were found in downtown on Friday morning, the Denver Police Department said.

A cleanup crew located the items near the Colorado Convention Center at 14th and Welton streets about 9:45 a.m. after they were reported by a passer-by. The bomb squad contained the area, police said.

The Denver Fire Department said it was able to recover six bottles filled with an unknown substance.

There was no fire involved and the department said it will continue its investigation, though there is no threat to the public.

Police have not confirmed what the substance is and have not identified any suspects.
