The device was left sometime during the early-morning hours Tuesday. It was discovered in a backpack just before 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Nederland Town Marshall Paul Carrill said officers initially believed the backpack was lost property. It was brought inside police headquarters and after looking inside the bag, it was determined the building and the Caribou Ridge Shopping Center needed to be evacuated.
