Tampa Police have determined the suspicious package reported at the Walmart located at 1505 N. Dale Mabry Hwy posed no threat to the public. The package appears to be a normal purchase item that had the labeling removed, leaving just a cardboard package that caused concern.
“This was a positive outcome and a prime example of why we say: ‘See Something, Say Something’,” said Chief Lee Bercaw. “The Tampa Police Department will always respond if a member of our community sees something suspicious. The fact that this employee called us when they saw what they felt was a suspicious package highlights the fact that in Tampa we are safer, together.”
The store has allowed customers to re-enter.
