WORTHINGTON, Ind. (WTHI) - A Wabash Valley cemetery closed after a suspicious object was found on the grounds.
South Jefferson Street in Worthington, Indiana has been closed in front of the town's cemetery. Worthington is in Greene County.
The closure is due to an investigation being conducted after a report of a suspicious object was found inside the cannon near the new memorial in the center of the cemetery on Wednesday morning.
Local officers and Indiana State Police bomb technicians responded to the scene where they found a cylinder object made out of PVC pipe
Chris Franich, a Worthington local, approached police, stating he created the object.
The object was not a bomb but instead it was a geocache, a piece used in a navigating game often using GPS, something that many people play across America.
Indiana State Police say they are working with the geocache society to hopefully avoid situations like this one in the future.
