Knoxville police had to briefly shutdown Magnolia Avenue Friday evening to blow up a suspicious device.

Police officers, including the bomb squad, responded to the Family Dollar on Magnolia avenue and Cherry Street for a bomb scare.

Officers found a small safe sitting outside the door of the store. They used a bomb squad robot to move the safe to the side of the building.

Officers shut down traffic on Magnolia Avenue when they blew the safe up using a water cannon.

They say they found prescription medicine inside.
