CHICO — A possible explosive device discovered in a north Chico storage locker this morning was determined to be harmless and legal to possess.

Chico police said there was no reason to confiscate the object and left it in the locker.

It was discovered by employees of Bidwell Self-Storage on Heritage Lane about 11 a.m. as they went through a locker whose renter is reportedly delinquent on payments.

Police limited access to the business for about 90 minutes until a member of the Butte Interagency Explosive Ordinance Disposal team arrived and identified the object.
