ERIE COUNTY, Penn. (WTHR) — People in Pennsylvania are a bit on their toes after police say someone released bed bugs inside a men's dressing room at a Walmart.

It happened last Thursday. Police say a manager at the store found a closed pill bottle with live bugs crawling inside. The next day, a lab found bed bugs crawling inside the men's dressing room.

The lab also found a second pill bottle with dead bugs in another section of the store.

The store blocked off the area and brought in a pest management service for treatment.

There's no word on who is responsible for releasing the bugs. Pennsylvania State Police is investigating the incident.
