BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham police are looking for a woman whose name has been associated with three suspicious packages found in the city.

Three suspicious packages have been discovered, retrieved and safely disposed of across Birmingham in the past 24 hours.

On Sunday, a package was discovered on the steps of the Daniel Building, also known as the BBVA Compass building, on 10th Avenue and 20th Street South. Police shut down 20th Street for hours while they investigated. They found that the suspicious package was actually a letter.

On Monday morning, another suspicious package was found at the Massey Building in downtown Birmingham near 3rd Ave. and 20th Street North. The streets near the building were closed for a few hours while Birmingham police conducted an investigation. They have since reopened to traffic.

A third suspicious package was found at 4th Avenue and Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd., also on Monday morning.

All three of the suspicious packages were envelopes containing papers with personal information related to a woman in her 40s named Vera Quarles, according to Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams. Quarles may be a transient living on the south side of Birmingham.

Police want to speak with Quarles as soon as possible because they believe she may be connected to the suspicious packages. She is not being called a suspect at this time. They say that since none of the packages contained threats, charges are not expected to be filed against the person who left them.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Birmingham Police Department.
