TOPPENISH, WA - Federal authorities said the suspicious device found outside Legends Casino in Toppenish Tuesday morning was not a bomb.

It was a piece of pipe that could have been mistaken for a pipe bomb, but it didn't contain any explosives or any type of igniter.

People inside the casino evacuated and surrounding tribal buildings were put on lockdown while the bomb squad investigated.

The casino re-opened later that night.
