Authorities identify ‘suspicious’ device at Spout Springs Road

Object posed no threat but report caused early-morning lane closures

POSTED: August 1, 2014 9:53 a.m.

No threat was found from a suspicious device responsible for the closure of a South Hall road this morning.

According to Flowery Branch Police Chief David Spillers, the suspicious object was a "commercially available anti-theft device," often found attached to clothing and other items in retail stores.

"Once that loop is broken or disconnected, the device begins emitting an audible tone and has a small red, flashing light," he said.

Spillers said the device was wrapped in aluminum foil and either placed or thrown onto Spout Springs Road.

It was spotted at the intersection of Spout Springs Road and Holland Dam Road, near the Publix and Target shopping centers.

All lanes of Spout Springs between Hog Mountain Road and Interstate 985 were closed for the investigation; the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrived on the scene around 6:30 a.m. and determined there was no danger.
