Checking local police reports provided this morning to Z-1570, Alton Police were called to investigate the report of a mysterious device found inside a truck at an impound lot behind Past and Present Auto Parts on East Broadway yesterday afternoon.   Unsure of what it was, police called in the Illinois Secretary of State Bomb Squad to investigate and dispose of the item.  Police closed a portion of East Broadway near the business for several hours yesterday afternoon, and once the bomb squad arrived, it was determined the item was a prop used in airsoft or paintball games, and had been left behind in the vehicle.

Elsewhere, there was no one new reported held early this morning.
