NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - North Platte police say a suspicious object left in a bank parking lot was harmless.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/1lBjcDd ) that police were called to investigate a bicycle cart in a NebraskaLand National Bank parking lot on Thursday. A section of street was closed.

Police Sgt. Jeff Foote says the cart contained what appeared to an electronic circuit board and wires, with a fitting on the end of one wire that resembled a sensor.

Foote says police contacted the Nebraska State Patrol, which sent a bomb technician to examine the cart. The technician determined that the objects did not pose a threat.

Authorities say they believe the cart was left by a transient man who was seen earlier in the day, and they don’t believe his intentions were bad.
