According to Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver, a deputy was fueling his vehicle at the Russell Oil Company facility on the Chesnut Bypass when he noticed a suspicious device and alerted other law enforcement personnel. Members of the Sheriff's Office and Centre Fire and Police Departments responded and evacuated the immediate area. A member of the Alabama Department of Public Safety's bomb squad responded and determined the object was an inert miltary training device. The device was X-rayed to assure that it was safe to remove from the location. According to Sheriff Shaver, it was determined that the device had been discarded near a local storage facility and had been found by a property owner.
