ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - Police are investigating a pipe bomb that prompted the evacuation of an Elkins auto dealership.

Performance Motors marketing director Stephanie Murphy tells The Inter-Mountain (https://bit.ly/1v9cNMH ) that a mechanic discovered the device on Monday morning underneath a stack of crates.

About a dozen employees were in the building when police evacuated the structure. Police also closed several surrounding streets.

Police tell media outlets that the device was a pipe bomb but it didn’t have active explosives. A West Virginia State Police bomb technician diffused the device.

No arrests have been made.
