Aldi store evacuated over bomb fears
THE bomb squad has swept through a suburban Aldi store in Melbourne's southeast, deeming it safe after a suspicious package was earlier located.
The Bomb Response Unit was called in and a robot was sent into the store to look around before the area was declared safe.
Local businesses were reportedly impacted by the scare. Staff were told to stay indoors while police attended and an exclusion zone was set up around nearby streets.
Police said there was no threat to public safety.
