ORANGE PARK, Fla. – The Clay County Sheriff’s Office was urging parents to pick up their children Saturday night from the Orange Park Mall, which closed at 8 p.m.
According to a social media post a little before 8:30 p.m., there was a large law enforcement presence at the mall because of “large groups of juveniles causing disturbances.”
No further details were provided.
News4JAX reported on a similar situation in September 2022 at the AMC Theatre. At that time, deputies temporarily closed the mall until the teens were cleared.
