Berkeley streets reopen after bomb team renders suspicious device safe

A suspicious device that prompted police to cordon off an area of North Berkeley early Friday afternoon has been rendered safe, authorities said.

The device was reported on Shattuck Avenue near Rose Street, an area close to the Kamado Sushi restaurant, a CVS Pharmacy store and a Safeway grocery store, according to Berkeley police Lt. Mel Turner.

Officers cordoned off the area and the police bomb team responded to the scene and rendered the device safe, Turner said.

All the streets in the area have reopened but an investigation is ongoing to determine what the device was, according to Turner.
