PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say a flashlight found outside their headquarters was determined not to be a bomb.
The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/MCG3cU) reports police temporarily closed Washington Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues Wednesday while investigators made sure a black flashlight was not an explosive device.
Police spokesman Trent Crump says the flashlight was found turned on in the middle of the street.
The precautionary measure comes in the wake of three flashlight bombs that detonated in metro Phoenix in May.
The explosions caused minor injuries to five people.
Police and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have no suspects.
The incidents have led to a billboard campaign warning residents about discarded flashlights.
