Lynnwood Police cordoned off a large area outside Alderwood Mall on Friday night to investigate a suspicious package.
The closed area appears to be the south side of the mall, near the food court. Bomb technicians were called in to examine the object around 10:30 p.m.
Bomb technicians examined the object and determined it was not an explosive, Lynnwood Police said in a tweet. It was likely an object left behind by a customer.
