Book bag filled with clothing causes shutdown of Wendy's | News
FOREST ACRES, SC (WIS)- A book bag filled with clothing caused the shutdown and evacuation of a Wendy's restaurant on Forest Drive, according to the Columbia Police Department.
The restaurant was closed down around noon this afternoon. The bag, which was believed to be a suspicious package, was found in the parking lot near the drive-through.
CPD's Bomb Squad arrived a short time later to investigate the situation. They eventually used a bomb disposal robot's water disruption tool and discovered the bag was non-threatening.
The restaurant was reopened several minutes later.
