The Adams County Sheriff's Office said that a suspicious device near a pair of Brighton schools was safe.

Authorities plan to examine the contents later.

The incident began along 124th Avenue west of the Adams County administration building shortly after lunch. 

Police closed 124th Avenue between Potomac Street and Sable Boulevard. Authorities brought in the bomb squad as a precaution.

School District 27J tweeted that no schools were on lockout and that there was no impact to schools in the area (Prairie View High School and Henderson Elementary School).

The district said in its tweet that school let out at the normal times and that buses and parents had access to the elementary school.
