A suspicious device found Wednesday morning in front of the El Dorado County Courthouse in South Lake Tahoe has been deemed “non-explosive,” the South Lake Tahoe police department said.
A groundskeeper working at the El Dorado County Courthouse at 1354 Johnson Blvd. noticed the device in front of the courthouse about 6:35 a.m, police said.
An explosive ordinance team was brought to the scene and deployed a robot to asses the device.
The police dispatch center was evacuated, and all emergency and nonemergency calls were being forwarded to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department. All normal business activity has resumed.
The South Lake Tahoe Police Department is investigating the incident.
