Police are investigating the discovery of a possible explosive device found Friday in a storage unit in Chico, Calif.
Managers at Bidwell Self-Storage found a crate containing an object similar to an artillery shell in a unit. The managers were taking inventory of the second-floor unit after the tenant became delinquent.
Police closed off the street leading to the facility just before noon. However, there were not immediate plans to evacuate the surrounding area. The Butte County Interagency Explosive Ordinance Disposal team was expected to arrive shortly to identify the device and determine if further action was warranted.
