MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Police were on the scene of an investigation in the Socastee area Sunday evening.

The Horry County Police Department said the active investigation shut down Socastee Boulevard between Coalition Drive and Stonebridge Drive.

The department later stated that officers responded “out of an abundance of caution for a ‘suspicious package.’”

The HCPD said the package turned out to be a collection of abandoned items that were no threat to the community.

The section of Socastee Boulevard re-opened at around 7:40 p.m.
