Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) - After hours of evacuation, the Detroit Lakes Walmart is reopened.

The Crow Wing County bomb squad investigated the store because of a suspicious package found on Friday.

The "suspicious package" turned out to be a zipped-up coat with several other store items inside of it.

Authorities suspect the shopper was planning to steal the merchandise-filled coat, but decided against it; hiding it in the store where coats don't usually belong.
