Suspected bomb a geocaching device

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. — It turns out that the suspected bomb found yesterday near the Tweetsie Trail really wasn’t an explosive device.

Johnson City police say it was only a device used for geocaching – a game where players use GPS to hide and seek containers all over the world and once they find them, they make an entry in a book that’s placed in the container.

WJHL reports the bomb squad was called in yesterday to neutralize the suspected device which looked like a pipe bomb.
