A strange silver object was found on 95Fwy around 1:00pm. Causing the freeway to be close in both directions for Vegas Boulevard and Spaghetti Bowl. According to the Nevada High Way Patrol.
“We know this caused a big inconvenience for a lot of drivers but we are not going to short-cut the public’s safety when we want to make sure this item is not going to be a threat to our public,” said Trooper Loy Hixson with NHP.
Metro’s bomb squad was called in to investigate. Officers used a robot to detonate the suspicious item.
Once the item was detonated, authorities said it no longer posed any threat to the public. It remains unclear what the item was or how it got there.
The object will now be taken to a lab in order to determine what it is.
