Updated: Wal-Mart in Ypsilanti Township evacuated after suspicious package is found
The Wal-Mart at 2515 Ellsworth Road in Ypsilanti Township was evacuated this afternoon after an employee found a suspicious package inside, Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department spokesman Derrick Jackson said.
However, police had cleared the scene by 1:13 p.m. after they determined that there was no safety threat.
The Michigan State Police Bomb Squad arrived on the scene at about 12:50 p.m., Jackson said, and left about 30 minutes later.
Jackson said there was a package inside the store with wires coming out of it. It was attached to a circuit board, he said, prompting concerns about a possible bomb threat.
However, Jackson confirmed that officials received no threat in relation to the package.
The store has reopened.
