The Abington Township Police Department report that on Wednesday, June 4th a suspicious package was found in the parking lot of the Huntingdon Valley Shopping Center.
Police arrived and determined that the Montgomery County Bomb Squad should be called in. Once the bomb squad was on the scene the package, a backpack, was x-rayed, but that did not provide a definitive answer to the contents.
The decision was made to detonate the backpack with a controlled explosion. After the detonation, it was inspected and found to only contain household items. There was not an explosive device.
We believe the detonation can be heard in the above video.
