SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. - An suspicious item that was found outside an apartment complex near Kendall Thursday night is being investigated by the bomb squad.

The item was found near a dumpster in the complex at 8337 SW 107th Avenue. According to Detective Roy Rutland of the Miami-Dade County Police Department, a preliminary investigation suggests the item does not contain explosive materials, despite a "realistic appearance."

The item was seized and will be destructed at a secure location, Rutland said early Friday morning.
