Early this morning, officials disposed of a explosive device that was placed under a car in Manchester after the device created panic in the immediate area.

According to WMUR News 9, things were tense in an area of Morning Glory Drive around 3am. Police responded to a report of a suspicious device which was located under a vehicle. Initially, New Hampshire State Police checked the device, which police said had wires coming out of it. They later were able to determine there was no danger to the public as the device was not capable of causing an explosion.

Turns out, it was a fake, which was a major relief to all involved. Officials also went on to say there is not a threat to the community as a result of this incident. According to WMUR News 9, twenty six year-old Patrick Durgan will now face a felony charge of placement of simulated explosives in connection with the incident.
