A suspicious device was found on a rental car near Albuquerque International Sunport Airport on Sunday, according to a report by CNN.
New Mexico authorities say that the device appeared to be a “credible explosive device” but it has been found to be a hoax, according to the report.
There were “no explosives associated with the device,” Thomas Mangan, spokesman for the Arizona Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, told CNN.
The device was discovered on the rental car when it was put on a lift to be inspected, says the report. Employees at the rental facility contacted police.
Mangan told CNN that authorities are conducting an investigation to determine who created this hoax device, according to the report.
