Parking lot reopens at Plank Road Walmart

Police and firefighters have reopened an area of the parking lot and one of the entrances to the Walmart in Plank Road Commons shopping center about 9:45 p.m. Friday.

Concerns over a suspicious package with a note spotted on a trash can in the parking lot had led state and Allegheny Township police to cordon off part of the parking lot Friday evening until a Penn State University bomb squad arrived.

Customers whose vehicles were in the blocked-off area were not permitted to get to their vehicles until the scene was cleared.
