Suspicious package deemed not a threat, says Klamath County sheriff

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.– A suspicious package reported at a Klamath Falls grocery store Saturday afternoon proved to have posed no threat, according to a news release from the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office.

At around noon on Saturday, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Grocery Outlet, located in the 4300 block of South Sixth Street, for a reported suspicious package at the business. Store management alerted law enforcement after workers performing maintenance discovered a suspicious package.
