The Maine State Police has dispatched its bomb squad to Walgreens in Topsham in response to the discovery of a suspicious package.
This comes after bomb threats were called into multiple Walgreens locations throughout the state yesterday. Investigations into each of these threats were completed, and police determined that no bombs or other explosive devices were present at any of the affected stores.
With these threats in mind, however, employees at the Topsham location contacted police around noon today when a suspicious package was left at the FedEx drop box inside their store.
As of about 1:30 this afternoon, the store had been evacuated and remains closed at this time.
The State Police Department’s bomb squad was on the scene this afternoon to investigate the package in question.
No additional information has been released at this time.
