Las Vegas police deemed a suspicious device posed no threat following an investigation Monday that shut down several east valley intersections.
Just before 11:40 a.m., a person called 911 to report the suspicious device at Walnut Avenue and Damon Drive, near East Bonanza Road and North Nellis Boulevard, according to Metropolitan Police Department officer Alejandra Zambrano.
Details regarding the device were not disclosed, but Metro’s All-Hazard Regional Multi-agency Operations and Response unit — better known as ARMOR — checked the device and deemed it safe by 2 p.m.
ARMOR is responsible for mitigating and investigating hazardous materials including explosive devices.
