RENO, NV - Washoe County Consolidated Bomb Squad detonated a 'suspicious device' on Foothill Road, which turned out to be a 'Geocache'.

Washoe County officials could not identify the 'box' that was reported in front of the Squeeze-In restaurant on Foothill road. Officials closed down the road and the bomb squad detonated the device.

The 'device' turned out to be a 'geocache' an item used by GPS enthusiasts and placed at coordinates to be found by other 'Geocachers'. The items was an ammo box that was placed in 2006 and had just been found. It was padlocked to a lightpole and marked 'High Explosives'. After detonation, officials determined the cache was safe, however misleading.
