Device found at Wichita motel novelty item

KSAL StaffSeptember 1, 2014

A Wichita motel employee who was cleaning rooms found a device with wires and a pair of tubes that were made to look like sticks of dynamite, but it turned out to be a novelty item.

The Wichita Eagle reports 30 people were evacuated from the Mark 8 Inn shortly after the employee reported the item at 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Police Sgt. Ed Brower says the occupant of the room told police it was a novelty, but investigators had to verify that claim for themselves.

The bomb squad took X-rays of the device and determined it was harmless.
