Detroit Lakes Walmart reopens after suspicious package investigated
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. -- The Walmart in Detroit Lakes reopened hours after it was evacuated Friday afternoon because of a suspicious package.
The Crow Wing County Bomb Squad investigated the package, which turned out to be a zipped-up coat with several other store items inside it.
Authorities suspect a shopper was planning to steal the merchandise-filled coat but decided against it, hiding it in the store where coats don't usually belong.
