A wire-wrapped rod found in a night deposit box at a Sun City bank Tuesday prompted an evacuation and brought out the bomb squad, but it turned out to be harmless, authorities said.

The package was found about 10:15 a.m. in the 27000 block of Sun City Boulevard, according to sheriff's Investigator Jerry Franchville.

The sheriff's explosives experts were called, and the bank and parking lot were evacuated until the item could be examined, Franchville said.

I could not determine which bank it was.
