Officers shut down the roads and evacuated businesses near the Pilot Truck Stop on Seventh North Street yesterday afternoon. Someone called 911 to report that a package had been left near the gas pump. 

Investigators say it turned out to be an empty plastic tube. Police say a man left the tube behind because he couldn't fit it into a trash can.
