Tulsa Police gave an "all clear" after a suspicious device was reported near the Center of the Universe in downtown Tulsa Monday morning, July 9.

A sergeant told News On 6 they found a small black object wrapped in black electrical tape left on a nearby staircase. Officers taped off the popular walkway for a few minutes while the bomb squad was called in. They quickly determined there was no danger.

"We'd rather be safe than sorry. It's not a burden on us, as far as us having to come out. We recommend that anybody, if you see something, if it looks out of place, if it looks suspicious, please, call the police," Captain Malcolm Williams said.

Officers said they still aren't sure what the object actually was.
