Authorities are investigating after a 'suspicious device' was found in the parking lot of a strip mall on East Laurel Street.

Police Chief Randy Fontenot tells KATC that the manager at the Family Dollar on East Laurel Street saw a suspicious device near the door of the store Saturday evening.

The parking lot has since been cleared as State Police, Hazmat, and the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office work to figure out what the object is.

No threats had been made, Fontenot added.

We'll update with more information as it becomes available.
