After a man found a suspicious device he thought was a bomb, he alerted Elizabeth police who responded, and thought it could be a bomb.

The device is currently secured, and is being investigated.


Police called in the Union County bomb squad who sent in a drone to examine even further; the drone indicated it could be a live bomb.
