MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - An object that turned out to be a restaurant pager caused a stretch of road in Melbourne to be shut down for about three hours.
Police received reports early Thursday morning about an object beeping and flashing a blue light in the middle of the road.
Officers at the scene could not determine if the pager had been altered, so the Brevard County Sheriff's Bomb Squad was called.
The bomb squad eventually determined that the device was harmless and reopened the street.
