Westerville police called the Columbus Division of Fire Bomb Squad after a man turned in two suspected explosive devices he found in his Westerville friend's residence.
According to reports, the Delaware man was cleaning out a shed at a residence in the 800 block of East Walnut Street on the afternoon of May 13.
While cleaning the shed, he reportedly found "what appeared to be two explosive devices," according to reports.
According to reports, the woman at the residence told him she did not know what they were.
The man took the devices to the Westerville Division of Police, where an officer saw what the man was carrying and "advised (him) to stop touching the devices."
Westerville police evacuated the lobby, shut down the pathway between 21 and 29 S. State St. and called the Westerville Division of Fire to the scene, reports stated.
Firefighters then called the bomb squad while Westerville officers searched the shed and residence for additional devices. According to reports, they found nothing that indicated more devices existed.
When the bomb squad arrived, personnel determined the devices had no power source or explosive charge, reports stated.
According to reports, they kept the devices "for future training purposes" and closed the case.
