PD investigate suspicious package at Goodyear shopping center

GOODYEAR, AZ - Police say a suspicious package found at a Goodyear shopping center may have just been a practical joke.

The package was found around 2 p.m. between Lowes and the Brass Armadillo at the shopping center near McDowell and Dysart roads, according to police.

Goodyear police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis said the package was making noise and was wrapped in a cellophane-type material.

Reportedly a woman said she pulled the beeping item from under her car.

A Glendale bomb team was called out to assist and it was ultimately determined that the item was a clothing security sensor that had been wrapped and glued under the woman's car.

Police believe it may have been intended as a practical joke.

There were no evacuations, but police had asked people to avoid the area.

The scene is now clear.
