ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) - A suspicious device that shut down part of the Central Washington University campus for four hours Tuesday was determined to be a homemade camera.

Campus Police Chief Steve Rittereiser told Daily Record a groundskeeper found a cylinder with duct tape on it. Officers closed a street while an Army explosive ordnance disposal team from the Yakima Training Center traveled to Ellensburg to check it out the unidentified object.

The chief says it contained what appeared to be film and could have been a camera made for some project.
