KHQ.COM - Emergency crews responded to suspicious package at 5500 N. Government Way. Major Ben Wolfinger tells KHQ that at 9:15 Saturday morning an inmate with the Inmate Labor Program was picking up litter around the Sheriff's Dept. when he noticed a device in a drain pipe. The inmate picked up the device and showed it to a deputy. The deputy then told the inmate to put it back because it looked like an improvised explosive device. The device was described as a phone attached to a red stick. The Kootenai Sheriff's office was closed and the jail was not evacuated. The Spokane County Bomb Squad arrived on the scene and rendered the device to be safe.  It turns out it was a road flare attached to a phone with a battery lodged into the flare. The device will be used for evidence as authorities look for a suspect. The suspect faces felony charges. Deputies tell our Kaitlyn Bolduc that this device was intentionally made to scare people. Government Way was closed from Dalton to Kathleen for nearly 6 hours. >>>>If anyone has information that can help authorities you're asked to call the Coeur d' Alene Police Department at (208) 769-2320
