PPD: Suspicious object near mall deemed not dangerous


A suspicious object originally described as a potential pipe bomb near Stoneridge Shopping Center on Monday was determined not to be an explosive device, according to Pleasanton police.

The situation began unfolding just before noon Monday when a passerby reported seeing a possible pipe bomb in the parking lot near the Macy's Men's Store, according to police, who noted the call was not received as a bomb threat.

Officers arrived, found the object and immediately closed the area off to all traffic, police said.

The Alameda County Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Squad was called to the scene, and the EOD personnel determined the pipe was not a bomb and posed no threat to public safety, according to police.
