COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Emergency crews say they found clothes and handcuffs inside a backpack left outside a CVS pharmacy on Broad River Road Wednesday morning.

As a precaution, stores were evacuated in the shopping center containing the CVS, a Food Lion and a Family Dollar while emergency crews investigated.

Investigators say the backpack was not a danger to the public and the stores will reopen.
