The bomb squad was called to a shopping center at Shaw and Villa after a suspicious device was reported.
Someone was looking for recyclable cans in a trash can outside Michaels Arts & Craft store when they spotted what looked like a pipe bomb.
The bomb squad determined that while the device did look like a bomb, it was not an explosive device.
Business is back to normal at the shopping center.
