Bomb squad responds to Tribal mailroom
The black PVC circular object was left on the front deck of the mailroom with a 4-by-4-inch Post-it note underneath, according to a tribal press release.
It was immediately reported to the Grand Ronde Police Department. Sgt. Jake McKnight cordoned off the area and contacted Salem police.
It was later determined the item was a hobo meter used to gauge water temperature, which was accidently left at the mailroom instead of the Natural Resources building, according to the Smoke Signals newspaper.
