Kroger’s Reopens After Last Night’s Bomb Scare

Kroger’s is open today after a suspicious package in a nearby parking lot caused the store to close late yesterday.

Shortly after 6, a package left in a buggy was spotted in the soon-to-open PetCo parking lot, next to Kroger’s.  The evacuation of stores and facilities is standard procedure when officials are unable to identify a suspicious parcel.

Police are investigating to ensure the package was not left with the intention of creating panic, which is a felony in Louisiana.
