Suspicious bottles found Tuesday morning in a Coeur d’Alene parking lot were intended to be an explosive, police say.

Police received reports of suspicious objects around 8:15 a.m. at 4th Street and Indiana Avenue, according to Sgt. Christie Wood. Coeur d’Alene firefighters and Kootenai County hazardous materials workers responded, and a Spokane bomb squad was also called to assist.

The bomb squad “rendered the objects safe” and recovered two bottles filled with unidentified substances, Wood said in a news release. The bottles were sent to a state lab for testing.
