PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

The bomb squad is investigating after what was believed to be a suspicious device was found strapped to a tree in Parma on Wednesday morning.

Construction workers spotted it around 10 a.m. at State and Brook Park Road.

Officers believed it to be a pipe bomb, but the bomb squad found no explosive information. It actually contained little prizes and a clue for an online scavenger hunt game.

Parma Police say whomever placed the device there could still face charges of inducing panic.
