A Layton intersection less than a mile south of Hill Air Force Base was shut down after a passerby called 911 to report what looked like a pipe bomb.
Layton police Sgt. Kyle Schroeder said officers and bomb experts rushed to the scene, the southwest corner of Antelope Drive and Hill Field Road, at 8:45 p.m. Monday.
"[The item] did appear suspicious, and the area was secured. Traffic was redirected on all sides of the intersection, pedestrians were cleared from the area and surrounding businesses closed," Schroeder stated.
