Police: Suspicious package in Bellmore not dangerous

Police say the suspicious package found in a Bellmore King Kullen shopping center was just a suitcase with household items in it.

As a precaution, police evacuated everyone from the King Kullen shopping center and briefly halted traffic in both directions on Sunrise Highway just after 6 p.m. Friday.

After conducting an investigation, police say the package was not dangerous.

Traffic returned to normal and shoppers were allowed back in the store following the probe.
