OSPREY, Fla. - A Hazardous Devices crew was called out to a Sarasota County Walmart on Sunday to investigate a military-style ammunition box in the parking lot.

It happened at approximately 6:30pm at the Walmart located at 13140 S. Tamiami Trail in Osprey.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, Walmart employees notified deputies of an unattended green military-style ammunition box in the parking lot. Deputies confirmed the green box was still located in the parking lot.

Deputies with the Hazardous Devices Unit then responded to investigate. Shortly after their arrival, technicians were able to determine the box was safe to handle and it was removed. The box contained firearm ammunition and the person who left it is not known at this time.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office at 941-861-5800 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 941-366-TIPS (8477)
