    Crews responded to a Camden County, New Jersey trail Friday morning after someone found a suspicious looking pipe.

    According to Cherry Hill Township Police, someone found a crudely-capped section of PVC pipe along Borton Mills Trail near the corner of Brace Road and Borton Mill Road in Cherry Hill around 7 a.m.

    Firefighters and the county bomb squad joined police in the investigation.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later you could see crews at the scene. Local dispatchers didn't immediately reveal what caused the situation, which was simply described as a hazmat scenario.

    As the K-9 unit searched the rest of the park, the bomb squad recovered the device and rendered it safe, according to police.

    No other improvised devices were found and the area was reopened later in the morning.

    Anyone who knows who left the device or saw anything suspicious is asked to contact Cherry Hill Police at 856-488-7828.
