MENTOR, Ohio -- Police said Saturday that a homeless man has been arrested and charged with inducing panic after a bomb squad was called to investigate a suitcase he abandoned outside a bookstore in northeast Ohio.
Police said someone noticed the bag at a Barnes & Noble near the Great Lakes Mall in Mentor. Officers temporarily evacuated the store and used a robotic device to determine it contained nothing hazardous.
