‘Suspicious’ Abandoned Lunchbox Shuts Down Gilroy Walmart
GILROY (CBS SF) — A suspicious package that evacuated a Gilroy Walmart for about two hours Thursday afternoon turned out to be a lunchbox left behind, a police sergeant said.
The lunchbox was reported as a suspicious package left at a McDonald’s restaurant inside the store in the 7100 block of Camino Arroyo at about 3 p.m., Sgt. Pedro Espinoza said.
The store was voluntary evacuated as a precaution. Gilroy police swept the building and the Santa Cruz County bomb squad responded and X-rayed the package.
It was determined to be a lunchbox, and the store reopened at about 5:15 p.m.
