NEWPORT NEWS -- A suspicious device turned out not to be anything dangerous.

Maintenance workers at an apartment complex on Mariners Court saw something they thought could be a pipe bomb, so they called the fire department around 9:10 a.m.

An investigation determined the item wasn't dangerous, and it was disposed of about an hour later.

Authorities did not say what the item turned out to be.
