Albuquerque police were called to investigate a suspicious device found outside a dumpster at 9201 Montgomery NE.

The device appeared to be a bottle with a fuse coming out of it and taped shut at the top.

A perimeter was established and police called in the bomb squad, who determined that the device was a large commercial firework.

The item was removed by the bomb squad and, according to police, will be destroyed at a later date.
