ORLANDO, Fla. (WDRB) -- Authorities in Florida are investigating after two suspicious packages were found and detonated at high profile sites.

The latest package was found on an access road to Seaworld Orlando.  Police describe package as a suitcase filled with electronics.

Local media reports in Florida say it was discovered by a security guard about 3 a.m.  The bomb squad detonated suitcase with water cannon.

Florida's Jacksonville International Airport reopened early Wednesday, after two suspicious packages forced an evacuation for nearly five hours.

Authorities have a suspect in custody after finding two suspicious packages -- including one they described as destructive -- at the Jacksonville International Airport.

Zeljko Causevic was booked into the Jacksonville County Jail early Wednesday and is being held without bond on charges that include making a false report about planting a bomb or explosive.

Officials say 39-year-old Causevic will be in bond court Wednesday afternoon.

The airport was shut down for nearly five hours Tuesday evening after the packages were found.

Michael Stewart, who handles external affairs for the Jacksonville Airport Aviation Authority, says another suspect was arrested and questioned. He says that suspect is not connected to the incident at this time.

The airport was back to normal operation Wednesday morning.  No flights were allowed to take off during the evacuation.
