"It appears as though it may have been placed and fell off. That's what it kind of looks like, but we are going to, again we are going into the forensics of that device, see if we can develop any evidence that leads to anybody and to see in fact if it was a viable device," said Sergeant Joe Heffernan, Toledo Police Department.
