PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- "See something, say something." That's what the manager of a Port Charlotte storage facility did after she discovered an explosive device in an abandoned storage unit.

After the recent terror attack in Orlando, she says she wasn't taking any chances.

The bomb squad came out and determined the explosive device wasn't a threat to the community.

Nonetheless, the manager who made the call says it important for everyone to stay vigilant.

The Sheriff's Office says they will continue their investigation.

They want to interview the former tenant to see if he has a good reason for possession of the device which looked like professional grade fireworks.

If he does, there won't be a reason to press charges.
