(WOODBURN, Ore. ) - Marion County Sheriff's Deputies and the Oregon State Police would like to remind residents to properly dispose of their household garbage after an incident that required police to call in the bomb squad.

Marion County Sheriff's spokesman Sergeant Chris Baldridge says deputies were called out to the report of a suspicious package of Front Street near Crosby Road, north of Salem at 10:45 a.m. Saturday.

When deputies arrived they found a metal pot with tin foil attached to it, sitting next to a power substation. After sealing the area off, deputies called experts with the Oregon State Police Bomb Squad who responded and opened the pot, Baldridge said.

Police discovered that the pot contained some type of bean soup.
