Cicero (WSYR-TV) - Police say a bomb squad responded to the scene of a device found under a vehicle in the town of Cicero Friday afternoon, but say it does not appear to have been an explosive.

Police say a worker at Hiawatha Fasteners went to pick up mail from their mailbox located on East Taft Road.

The worker noticed what looked to be a pipe bomb underneath a vehicle in the parking lot of Gary’s Auto Sales, according to police.

Police secured the site, alerted area businesses of the situation and closed a portion of the road as the bomb squad breached the item.

According to police, there was nothing in the device and there was no explosion or detonation.

Police say while the device was not a pipe bomb, they are still investigating how it arrived at the scene.
