On Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 7:05 p.m. the Fort Myers Police Department and Fire Department received a call in reference to a suspicious package in front of the CVS pharmacy at the corner of S.R. 82 and Lee Boulevard. Someone pressure washing the business saw the package fall from the back of truck. When he moved to take a closer look he observed what he thought was a container with a chemical substance.

Upon arrival, police cordoned off the area which included the intersection at S.R. 82 and Lee Boulevard. Firefighters called for assistance from their hazmat team and the Southwest Florida Regional Bomb Squad. Bomb Squad members used a robot to safely inspect the package at which time they determined it contained nothing hazardous. Police reopened the roads shortly before 10:00 p.m.
