Package Prompts Evacuation Of Kerman Shopping Center

KERMAN, Calif. (KMPH) -

A shopping center in Kerman was evacuated Tuesday morning while police investigated a package they feared was a bomb.

Kerman Police say a man found the package inside a newspaper dispenser at a supermarket parking lot on Whitesbridge and Madera avenues. He then called 911.

The bomb squad took the package to another location to detonate it.

It was not a bomb, but police say someone set it there on purpose. They are now trying to figure out who did it.

The evacuation order was lifted a few hours later.
