It turned out to be a plastic tote left by construction workers containing equipment used to test soils.

Police evacuated and closed the school's field house as a precaution. They called in a bomb squad with a robot to examine the container.

A nearby hospital remained open as authorities investigated in the area. Grand Rapids Community College ended up delaying the start of classes.
