Suspicious Device Found In Rains County

The radio station KMOO is reporting a suspicious device was found in Rains County earlier this week.

A Rains Country resident reportedly found a tube with orange end caps and covered with electrical tape in a ditch near a home.

The Garland Bomb Squad brought in a high-tech robot which removed the device and detonated it a few minutes later.

One county road was shut down for safety reasons turning back a bus load of Alba-Golden students.
