PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Salem Police bomb squad responded to the Walmart store in Woodburn Friday morning after an employee reported a suspicious bag.

Woodburn police said an employee noticed the unattended bag in the parking lot and called police.

The bomb squad used a robot to inspect the bag, which they found had PVC pipe inside.

There was nothing harmful in the bag, and police gave the all-clear just before 1 p.m.

The Walmart store's parking lot was taped off during the investigation, but the store remained open to customers.
