SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe police evacuated an area of downtown for about an hour following reports of a suspicious device.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/1p7PGkr) a couple came across the device around 1 p.m. Sunday outside the public library and notified authorities.

The police and firefighters cordoned off an area near Washington Avenue and Marcy Street from 1:30 p.m. until 2:45 p.m.

Police Capt. Patrick Gallagher says the device resembled a container of industrial pesticide.

Bomb squad officers removed it and will have it detonated at an explosive range.

There were no injuries.

Police say a nearby arts and crafts fair and an outdoor concert went on without disruption.
