OHP: Possible bomb found in Shawnee

SHAWNEE, Okla. - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol's bomb squad has removed a suspicious device from outside a gas station in Shawnee.

Experts plan to detonate the device at the city's firing range to find out if it contains explosives.

Police say a woman told them she had given a man a ride Saturday.  After she dropped him off, she noticed he had left a cylinder wrapped in duct tape in her car.

The highway patrol's robot retrieved the device.

There is no word on if the device has been detonated.
