SARASOTA, Florida–

The Sarasota County Hazardous Devices Unit responded to reports of a suspicious device Tuesday, which turned out to be a bong.

According to a post on the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, a caller reported seeing a man leave a small case wrapped in plastic under a bridge.

Taking an x-ray to it, investigators were able to see inside and likely have a good laugh.

The same Facebook post joked that the bomb unit could be called the bong unit.

Detectives are now asking the bong’s owner to come forward.
