Pennsylvania State Police are investigating after bed bugs were released in a Walmart changing room.
A manager at the Walmart store in Washington Township told police a closed pill bottle containing live bugs was found by store staff in a boy’s jacket that was for sale.
Walmart disposed of the jacket and pill bottle without contacting authorities, Pennsylvania State Police said in a news release.
An employee from Ecolab, a health safety company, visited the store Friday and found bugs that were later identified as bed bugs, crawling around in the men’s fitting room.
A second closed pill bottle was found Saturday by a store associate on the floor in the men’s department. It contained several dead bugs. Walmart called police afterward to report the incident.
