Officials say a suspicious device found Friday morning on East Wallace Kneeland Boulevard in Shelton was not an explosive.
Police were called to a bus stop on the 300 block of East Wallace Kneeland Boulevard at about 6:30 a.m. and found a pipe-like device with wires around it, according to Shelton police Lt. Mike Fiola.
The area was closed off and Washington State Patrol bomb squads from Tacoma and Everett were called in to determine whether it was an explosive device.
They removed the device from the area without incident and later determined it was not an explosive, according to a news release from Shelton police and the city of Shelton.
Shelton High School and Oakland Bay Junior High School were put on lockdown for about an hour Friday morning. The school district said there was no threat to students or the schools.
