A suspicious package at the Walmart on Gray Highway had many people on edge Friday night.

According to Sergeant Linda Howard with the Bibb County Sheriff's Office, the call came in around 8 p.m. regarding a box in the middle of the Walmart parking lot.

Several deputies taped off the parking lot, blocking some customers from getting into their cars.

After about 30 minutes, the K-9 unit was called in.

Howard says the dog "sniffed around" and did not detect anything dangerous inside the box. That's when an EOD unit deputy picked up the box and discovered that nothing was inside.
