CCPD and LCSO Bomb Squad are currently working what was called in as a suspicious package in the parking lot of Hess located at 833 Cape Coral Parkway East.  Westbound traffic has been temporarily shut down as a precaution, starting at the 1000 block of Cape Coral Parkway East.  Traffic on SE 47th Terrace between the 800 and 1000 block is also shut down.

At this time the Bomb Squad HAS destroyed the package using the robot and is currently assessing the contents to determine its contents.

Traffic will be re-opened as soon as possible once the scene is determined to be safe.

Further press inquiries can be directed to the Watch Commander's office once traffic flow has been restored and scene is cleared.
