A suspicious device that led Folsom police to evacuate residences near Goodell Road and Livermore Way early this afternoon did not contain explosives.
Shortly after noon, a resident reported finding the device while digging in his yard. Folsom fire crews and police responded and called the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department's Explosive Ordnance Detail to determine whether the device posed a threat.
After a careful examination, it was determined that the device was a solid object, likely a projectile, and contained no explosives, according to a Police Department news release.
The ordnance detail removed the device, and residents were allowed to return to their homes.
