The Butte County bomb squad was been called to Manzanita School in Gridley after a possible explosive device was discovered Friday afternoon.
Butte County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Miranda Bowersox says a device resembling a pipe bomb was found on Evans Reimer Road, near the campus, a little after school dismissed at 1:30 p.m.
Evans Reimer Road was partially closed, along with Larkin Road. The bomb squad destroyed the device and an investigation determined it was not a pipe bomb. The scene was cleared by 4 p.m.
