ATF: Suspicious Device Found at Legends Casino Did Not Contain Explosive Material

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) says yesterday's pipe found in a trash can at Legends Casino in Toppenish did not contain any explosive material.

Workers discovered what looked like a pipe bomb around 10 a.m. and authorities quickly responded and considered it a suspicious device forcing the evacuation of the casino and a lockdown of the tribal offices located across the street.

A Washington State Patrol Bomb Squad responded and deployed a robot to closer inspect the trash can.

Authorities are now reviewing surveillance video to see who may have placed the pipe into the trash can originally.
