LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a “suspicious device” found on the New Mexico State University campus in Las Cruces contained no explosive material.

Details weren’t released on the item found Thursday morning at an NMSU performing arts building.

However, the Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Office said there’s no indication that the device found Thursday morning was linked to the detonations of explosives outside two Las Cruces churches on Aug. 2.

The performing arts building and several others were closed and traffic in the area was blocked while a bomb squad rendered the device safe and explosives-sniffing dog teams conducted sweeps.
