Bomb squad deems electronic device non-hazardous

UPDATE @ 4:11 p.m.

Lt. Jason Hall, with Dayton police bomb squad, said crews were called for a suspicious package, and in the intersection they found a package with exposed wires, tubes and the looks of being hazardous. 

The robot was used to examine the package closer. 

Hall said it was a piece of electronics that was not dangerous. He said it was a power source for a large electronic device and had been damaged so the wires inside were visible.

UPDATE @ 3:34 p.m.

The intersection has been allowed to reopen. We are working to gather more information.

UPDATE @ 3:18 p.m.

A bomb-retrieving robot is on scene and moving down Wayne Avenue near Dollar General.
