The device was spotted just before noon near Glenn Ranch Road, according to Orange County sheriff’s Lt. Lane Lagaret. It turned out to be the casing of a bell, OCSD confirmed just before 1 p.m.

A Sig Alert was issued and deputies shut down traffic in both directions on El Toro Road for about 100 yards east and west of Glenn Ranch during the investigation.
