EVERGREEN, Colo. (KDVR) — A shelter-in-place order was issued for eight Evergreen homes Saturday afternoon after a suspicious object was found.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the object was located northwest of Sugarbrush Drive and Blackcomb Court. A resident out on a walk discovered it about 12:15 p.m.

A bomb squad responded to the scene and used a robot to determine that the object was not dangerous. The shelter-in-place order was lifted about 2:45 p.m.
