Suspicious package that led to Dunedin evacuations turns out to be medicine

DUNEDIN — A suspicious package that landed on a Dunedin woman's doorstep and prompted evacuations Wednesday turned out to be a box of medications, authorities said.

Debra Osmun, 52, called Pinellas County sheriff's deputies to her home at 2229 Lakewood Drive about 3 p.m. Wednesday after finding the package, which apparently was shipped from Bulgaria and contained no postage.

Deputies evacuated two neighboring homes and closed Lakewood Drive between Dogwood and Pinewood drives. A bomb squad from Hillsborough County also responded.

They determined the package wasn't explosive or a threat, and just had medications inside.

The Sheriff's Office is investigating.
