LILBURN, GA -- Parts of Stone Mountain Highway were closed briefly in Lilburn Tuesday afternoon after a suspicious device was found at the Yellow River Game Ranch.

Gwinnett County Sgt. Brian Kelly told 11Alive's Jerry Carnes that an employee found a device embedded in the ground that had the words "Danger Explosive Device" printed on it. Kelly said the device may have been there a while.

Authorities later said the device was a commercial blasting cap. After examining it, it was taken away, where officials said they would most likely destroy it.
