Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A scare today at Perkins Rowe, all because of a briefcase left on the sidewalk.
A block of the popular shopping center was shut down to traffic, and store employees had to stay inside while EBR deputies investigated.
Here's the good news: a Perkins Rowe spokeswoman tells NBC33, the man who left the briefcase behind came to pick it up.
We're told deputies were called in to be extra safe. No one was hurt, and after about an hour, EBR deputies opened the area back up to traffic.
