BROOKSTON, Ind. (WLFI) – State Road 18 in Brookston was closed for an hour Wednesday evening after a resident thought they saw a pipe bomb in the road.

Indiana State Police got the call around 6:30 p.m. and alerted its Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit. State Road 18 was closed around Mills Street for about an hour.

Investigators determined that the item was not an explosive device. Instead, it was a registration container for a semi truck which police believed must have fallen off a passing semi.
