Walmart in Avon Evacuated

Police are blocking entrance to the Walmart in Avon.

The Walmart on W. Main St. in Avon was evacuated due to a suspicious package.

Police responded to the store around 12:30 p.m. Sunday. They asked everyone inside the store to evacuate and also evacuated the large parking and prevented anyone coming off of the busy Route 44 from coming in.

The SWAT team and fire department also assisted.

During the investigation, police received a call that someone had left a bag in the area. That bag turned out to be the package they were investigating.

The scene was cleared and the store and parking lot reopened around an hour after the original call.
