Police in Wenatchee were called out around 11 a.m. on Saturday to what was thought to be an explosive device near the Wenatchee Convention Center. That closed access to downtown Wenatchee while experts moved in to investigate the suspicious looking gadget found near the fountain. Wenatchee Police Captain Edgar Reinfeld says the small object was wrapped in tape with exposed wires, something Reinfeld says they've seen before and something he says could easily be mistaken as a pipe bomb. Fortunately, investigators were able to confirm that it was not an explosive device. Police continue to investigate, they'll be checking camera footage from the area to see if they can determine who may have been behind the incident. Police were able to clear the scene and reopen travel through the area by 1:30 Saturday afternoon.
