WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Police in Rhode Island say they were relieved to find a suspicious briefcase reported in a busy parking lot contained only an accordion.

The Warwick Police Department says officers were called to check out the briefcase Thursday night and set up a perimeter for the bomb squad.

The bomb squad determined there was nothing inside — except the accordion.

Warwick police say the instrument was taken back to police headquarters where it still had not been claimed.
