Suspicious device on North Highlands lawn determined to be safe

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies determined a suspicious device found in North Highlands this morning was not dangerous.

Deputies received reports just before 11:30 a.m. today that a two-foot-long pipe, capped at both ends, was found in a yard in the 5800 block of Canary Drive near Watt Avenue and A Street, said sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.

Several homes in the area were evacuated and the bomb squad was called out to investigate.

Investigators later determined the object was safe.
