A bomb squad was sent to a Ralphs grocery store in Pasadena after a suspicious package was found Saturday at the market’s parking lot, triggering a closure of streets in the immediate area.

The discovery at 320 W. Colorado Blvd. was reported at about 12:30 p.m. and the public was advised to avoid Colorado Boulevard, between St. John Avenue and Orange Grove Boulevard, the city of Pasadena reported.

Out of “an abundance of caution’,” police closed down streets in the immediate area, according to city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian.
