Suspicious package halts Sunday shoppers

Posted: Updated:

Atlantic Station came to a near halt Sunday afternoon after a report of a suspicious package.

Police say someone called 911 after seeing an item near Atlantic Drive and 18th Street just before 4 p.m.

The surrounding area was blocked off for just over an hour. Customers were kept inside stores as precaution and residents couldn't get in or out several apartments.

Police say it turned out to just be a shoe box inside a bag. Once cleared, they worked quickly to reopen the area.
