Reno Police says the bomb squad worked on an incident inside a North Reno apartment complex Saturday.

Police tell Channel 2 News that authorities responded to the Wildcreek Garden Condominiums on Clearacre Lane around 6 a.m. to a report of a burglary. Police say the victim knew the suspect and directed officers to the unit where the suspect lived. Officers then found what appeared to be a pipe bomb hanging on the door of the suspect's apartment.

A few apartments were soon evacuated and the bomb squad was called to the scene. They sent a robot to disarm it, but police say it ended up being a fake bomb. Authorities cleared the area by 12:30 p.m. and people were able to return to their homes.

The suspect was not home at the time. Police are still looking for the suspect. They did not have a description available at this time. Police say they are continuing to investigate the incident.

Reno Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect(s). Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspect(s) should contact the Reno Police Department at 334-3852, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com, or text your tip to 847411 (TIP 411) Keyword - SW. Your call will remain anonymous.

A $250 reward is being offered.

    A northern Nevada man did not have symptoms of a heart attack. Rather, he felt a little tightness in his chest during high-intensity workouts and he suspected asthma. However, what he learned about his body might surprise you as much as it shocked him. Why Dane Hillyard says working out with a heart rate monitor likely saved his life.
