False alarm at Wyoming DPS after ‘munitions’ found

Kent County

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Wyoming police temporarily closed their headquarters to the public Tuesday morning after someone brought what looked like military munitions to the building.

Authorities say a citizen found the items in the home of a deceased family member. “With the best of intentions,” the person brought them to the headquarters for disposal, according to a news release from the Wyoming Department of Public Safety.

The apparent ordnance turned out not to contain any actual explosives, police say.

Wyoming DPS briefly closed headquarters, but it has since reopened.

Authorities say people should call police if they find something similar. Rather than moving the items, officers will come to you to determine the best way to dispose of it.
