HUDSON, N.H. (AP) - Police in Hudson say a suspicious package left in a store shopping cart has turned out to be a propane tank.

Officers were called to a Wal-Mart store shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday after a brown box sealed with packing tape was found in a cart near the store’s main entrance. The parking lot was closed and store personnel rerouted shoppers through a side door.

The Nashua Police Department’s bomb squad used a robot to take the package. An X-ray determined it had a propane tank inside.

Business resumed at the store about two hours later.

Police are attempting to identify the owner of the tank.
