The police responded to the call on Monday afternoon. After a brief investigation at the site, no package was found and the police determined that it was a false alarm. The immediate vicinity of the supermarkt, including part of the Vismarkt, was sealed off by police for about 45 minutes. After a specialist team made sure there was no threat, all police measures were lifted.
