The Oregon State Police Bomb Squad had to stop traffic on Highway 213 at Mount Angel-Scotts Mill Road on Sunday evening while they investigated a suspicious device that was found there.
A passer-by spotted the device, which was described as a bottle with foil on top of it and a fuse, and called 911.
The bomb squad destroyed the device without incident. No evacuations were necessary.
