July 22, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An unattended bag inside the Light Street pavilion at Harborplace last night caused a two-hour disruption to vehicular traffic and forced pedestrians away from the area as police retrieved the bag, which turned out to contain a camera, police said.

Police received a report about the bag at 6:35 p.m. It was near the Discovery Channel store on the first floor of the pavilion in the 300 block of Light St.

The police bomb squad retrieved the bag and took it to a nearby area to examine.

Vehicular traffic along more than a block of Light Street was detoured from the scene, and pedestrians were directed away from the area. The area was declared safe at 9:35 p.m.
