About a half dozen homes were evacuated in La Porte today.

What was thought to be a suspicious looking device...turned out to be a harmless plastic container.

About 11 a.m....police were called to Hastings Park at Monroe and Boyd Blvd.

As a precaution...the homes were evacuated.

Streets close to the park were also blocked off.

The Porter County bomb squad came out...and used a robot to retrieve the device.

Three hours later....people were allowed back into their homes.

It's suspected the plastic container was used in a game.

The devices are located by people using a GPS receiver and other navigational techniques.

The game is placed around the world.
