Police were called to Mount Berry Square Mall Thursday morning in response to a suspicious package but officials now say it was a false alarm.

The box was filled with recycled plastic bottles according to Mt. Berry's Ann Smith.

Major Tommy McGuire with the Floyd Sheriff's Field Operations Department confirmed a call about the package had been received but said no bomb threat was ever called in.

The mall was not evacuated.
