Police say a pair of eyeballs found in a medical cooler in a Kansas City gas station's trash bin aren't human. Spokesman Steve Young said Thursday that the police lab examined the eyeballs and determined they likely came from a pig.

Young said a worker at a Conoco gas station called police after finding the box late Wednesday. The cooler was labeled, "Keep refrigerated." Surveillance video shows two men in a blue Toyota with Nebraska license plates leaving the box on the trash bin.

Young said police aren't investigating further because no crime appears to have been committed. Earlier, police had said that no eye banks or hospitals in the area were awaiting delivery of any eyeballs.
