Today at approximately 3:00pm, the Cleveland Division of Police Bomb Squad responded to the Walmart at Steelyard Commons for a suspicious unattended package. The Walmart store was evacuated for safety reasons and traffic in the area was rerouted. The package was examined by the Bomb Technicians and determined to contain only personal effects. The owner of the package was located and after an interview, he was arrested for Inducing Panic. This matter will be further investigated. The name of the arrested male will be released once it becomes available.
Situations like this offer the chance to “See Something Say Something”. Policing is a partnership. It is important for members of the community to remain involved and make a call when something suspicious is observed.
