San Francisco’s Westfield Mall reopening after suspicious package scare

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco’s Westfield Mall is set to reopen after a suspicious package was deemed safe by San Francisco Police Department.

Around 10:45 a.m., San Francisco PD reported that the mall, located at 5th and Jesse streets, was temporarily closed “due to a suspicious package.”

By 11:15 a.m., police determined there was no threat to the public. Westfield Mall and all streets that were closed in relation to the incident should reopen as soon as investigators clear their equipment, police said.

Both directions of Muni lines 14 and 14R were blocked at 5th and Mission streets around the same time, “due to police activity,” according to SFMTA officials.

The activity was first reported around 10:20 a.m. in between 3rd and 4th streets in the Mission area.

Muni cars will be up and running again when the mall and surrounding streets reopen, according to Muni officials.
