JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - Chatfield High School was searched for a bomb after the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office received a call about a suspicious device at the home of a person who lives with two Chatfield students.
The bomb squad arrived in the 10600 block of Dakan Mountain Road in the Ken Caryl neighborhood and found the device about 3 p.m., according to Jefferson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer.
The bomb squad rendered the device safe without detonation, he told 7NEWS.
A sweep of the school, carried out as a precaution, did not turn up any additional devices.
Students at Chatfield were sent home with letters to parents explaining the situation.
"As a precautionary measure only, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office bomb squad was at Chatfield today ensuring that there were no devices at the school; nothing was found," the letter told parents.
The investigation was continuing Wednesday night.
