After Portland police called a bomb squad about a suspicious device, the object was taken away to be examined and destroyed.
Police were called Monday morning to look at something that was left at a building in North Portland. The object was on the steps of the Hereford House Food Pantry, on North Hereford Avenue.
After officers looked at the object, they called the Metropolitan Explosives Disposal Unit to the scene. That unit took the device to a safe location.
Anyone with information about the device is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
