MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The roads surrounding Ted Collins Law Enforcement Center in Myrtle Beach have reopened after bomb squad units left the scene with the devices they were examining.

Those bomb squad investigators arrived at the Ted Collins Law Enforcement Center around 4:15 p.m. to check out some possibly explosive devices which were found in a man's attic. That man brought them into the police station to learn how he could dispose of them, but it is unknown what these devices look like.

Police spokesman Capt. David Knipes says those devices were in the man's attic for a long time - possibly years.

Our photographer on scene says a robot was spotted searching through a bag in the building's back parking lot. The bomb squad later loaded the device into a heavy box and left the scene.

As of 5:40 p.m., both Oak Street and Mr. Joe White Avenue have been reopened to traffic. Stick with WMBF News for the latest updates on this story.
