BEND, OR -- Bend Police responded to a suspicious package at Wagner Mall, just before 3:45 p.m. Friday. The box was left outside Pack Ship & More, and measures about 24"x12", without any packaging labels. 

Officers evacuated multiple businesses for the safety of all employees, business owners, and the community. The Oregon State Police Bomb Squad is also responding.

A prior police investigation has caused a heightened concern that the package could be a threat to the community. 

BPD says this is an ongoing investigation, and asks the public to avoid the area of the Wagner Mall.  More information will be released when it becomes available. 


UPDATE: Two Oregon State Police Bomb Squad members responded to the area of the Wagner Mall to assist on this investigation. They determined the suspicious package contained donated items and a note was left with the package.  The area was secured by police for approximately four hours and now is reopened. There are no safety concerns pertaining to this incident in the area. 

BPD thanks the Oregon State Police for their assistance with this investigation.
