Neighbors were asked to take shelter in their basements Monday night, while the Nebraska State Patrol robot detonated a suspicious device.

Around 10:30 p.m., a package was found in the 1100 block of Jones Drive in Fremont. Officials said an item inside the box was dressed up to look like a bomb.

The Nebraska State Patrol responded immediately with its robot and detonated the device. It was determined not to be bomb; however, the items were taken into evidence and will be tested at the NSP lab.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fremont Police at 402-727-4002.
